Hey guys, I am from New Mexico and was wondering what "type of Hispanic" I am. First and foremost, I am half white/half Hispanic, with my father being white and mother Hispanic. My grandparents are from Mexico, but my mother was born and raised here in New Mexico. Would I fall under Mexican American or Other Hispanic? Thanks in advance for all replies.

You can identify as Mexican-American. If you identify as both Mexican-American and white it shouldn't directly affect your application. What you need to do, though, is make sure you either write about your background in your PS, or include a separate DS about it.
