they do not seem to distinguish Puerto Rican/ Mexican from other Hispanic. I am wondering because I am Cuban, does that mean NYU will give me URM status? Wishful thinking probably, but I was just curious.

From reading this forum, it seems like no one can agree on the boost (or lack there of) for Cubanish folk. There's nothing you can really do, so cross your fingers and hope for the best :-)

1. LSAC has a separate ethnicity questionnaire that gets sent to law schools (if the applicant chooses to fill it out).

2. NYU has an open ended question box specifically asking something like "what diverse groups do you belong to" or something like that.
