You're probably pretty good. I just assume there's a lot of competition from URM out there, no? A lot of Hispanics going to law school w/ similar stories competing for that top law school and top scholarship dollar. You'll have to do something that makes you stand out from the crowd because I'm pretty sure you're not the only Hispanic who will be attending law school that is the first in his family to even graduate from college. Did you have a serious hardship in your life? A serious struggle that you had to overcome? What makes you unique? What makes you deserving of law school admission and more importantly-- financial aid if that's what you're looking for.
PS: I love Costa Rica. Es un pais muy lindo; espero regresar pronto. Tambien me gustaria viajar a Puerto Rico. Quizas estudiar la ley alli?
