Lower T14 is in play IMO. I don't know as much about chances in the upper T14.

Unless you're a naturalized citizen, I don't think you're a URM.

I don't believe Haitian counts as AA/Black...I could very well be wrong, but it is important to ensure you don't check the wrong box

Interesting point. Are you? If so, Haitian would INDEED be considered African-American. Some schools have another individual box for individuals born in the islands while most schools roll it up under AA.

I'm curious, is your dad of Mexican decent or Haitian? And if Haitian, is there any reason why you are claiming the Mexican versus the latter?

OK to clear things up. I was born in Mexico but basically grew up in the U.S. and I am a naturalized citizen, so no I am not an international student. My dad is not of Mexican decent he is Haitian, and if anyone is unfamiliar with Haitians they are BLACK. (just so its clear lol). I am mixed but I look 100% African American/Black and because of this (and other reasons) I have always identified as a black/AA female. Although I self-identify as black much of my culture is Mexican, I'm a Mexican citizen and my first language is spanish. I don't usually bring up the fact that I'm mixed mainly because I don't see any reason to, I'm a black female with Mexican roots. It wasn't until I decided to apply to law school that one of my professors suggested I mention the fact that I have duel citizenship and to be more open about my Mexican heritage. SOOOOO I hope this clears up some of your questions... :D
