The best tool that we have to fight those stats is to support each other and strengthen those applications. Si nos unimos a huevo que hacemos la diferencia.
When I see those numbers, I feel more strongly about my decision to go to law school. I think it's kind of cool to think about. I get a little frustrated at first, but it really turns into only positive emotions afterward. Blackwater, estamos de acuerdo. Cuando vas a empezar a mandar aplicaciones?
To be honest, I wouldn't believe that a Mexican/Chicano would mark the Latino box instead of the Mex./Chicano box. If someone asks a Mexican-American, are you Mexican or Latino? They would respond Mexican, everyday of the week.
Bk, even if the numbers at Vandy, UVA, and Michigan are incorrect, all the others in the Top-20 are correct because schools that list the Mexican population greater than 0.1 percent calculate Mexicans as a specific category along with the Hispanic box.
Like everyone is saying, I think we all the have the picture about what is going on; no need to drag it out. And like Blackwater said, maybe we should make a thread focusing on how to get to law school and not worry about the ones who are already there (or not there). Anyone down? There's already an Hispanic Harvard thread, but that was for last cycle and, well, speaking for myself, we all can't go to Harvard
