Iowa is a possibility. Try lawschoolpredictor.com although it undersetimates URM chances.

What type of Hispanic?

If Puerto Rican or Mexican, this should help: http://search.lawschoolnumbers.com/user ... Cycle=0910

If other type of Hispanic, this should help: http://search.lawschoolnumbers.com/user ... Cycle=0910

I am also a hispanic (Mexican) female with similar LSAT. I don't have any legal experience (I spent undergrad working in research labs) and have a couple of publications as well. I think my cycle info is in my profile. Good luck!

Your cycle is likely to be much better than OP's because you are Mexican and OP is South American.

Certain groups get admissions boosts. They are generally referred to as URMs (underrepresented minorities). viewtopic.php?f=14&t=35568

South American Hispanic is not one of those groups but Mexican is. Some non-Puerto Rican, non-Mexican Hispanics have gotten small boosts but it is not nearly as uniform as it is for URMs so it is very hard to predict. So you might do better than your numbers indicate but I wouldn't count on it.
