Though not particularly Cuban, we have an established thread that serves a similar purpose--

My bad, didn't realize that was the purpose. How's your cycle going? Heard from any more schools lately?

Well, I'm Cuban, but I don't live in Florida and I would never in a million years go to law school there (too much family, not enough snow).

My cycle has been going swimmingly, though. Got a full ride at my first choice :D

Numbers and acceptances and whatnot in profile.

ETA: I don't think I particularly got any boost for being Cuban -- maybe it helped me get $$$, but I had a decent shot at every school I got into, and the one school that should be waitlisting me based on my numbers and seems to love minority applicants (UVA), I have not heard anything from yet.

i feel at home in this thread! haha i'm a half Cuban/half PR Floridian (so maybe not the best benchmark for everyone else here?). my acceptances are listed in my profile. i was also held at columbia yesterday, and Harvard and Stanford haven't gotten around to rejecting me yet. PM for stats y mucha suerte a todosss!! :wink:

oh and as for discussing FL schools... go gators! :lol:

You're only Cuban if both your parents are Cubans and you were born in Cuba...everyone else is a Cuban-? something.
