PR URM - Geographic Discrepancies?

Postby Nucky » Mon Jan 06, 2014 4:52 pm

AA's, NA's, and MA's are relatively well dispersed throughout the country. But I was curious as to whether PR URMs enjoy larger boosts in the areas that PRs typically populate since they are not nearly as well-dispersed.

For instance, would a NY or FL school give a larger boost to a PR than would say U of Wisconsin, Washington, or a Texas school? Or are they treated equally all around?

This is true of all URMs to some degree. Would not count on it making a significant difference, though.
