I just noticed this thread, but I think people have probably passed it by because a T14 with $$$ is very likely with your stats, and you have a solid shot at HYS.

The only thing that may get in the way of a really great cycle is the question of how big is the non-MA/PR Latinx bump. If it's as big, then you're golden. If it's not as big, you'll still probably beat your numbers for diversity's sake, but not by as much.

I don't think the non-MA/PR Latinx bump is as big, but I do think there is still a bump. I'm also South American with slightly higher stats and I got into H (although this was off the WL) and other T14s with $$. However, I don't know if my experience is the best example of the bump though since I literally wrote no diversity statement and felt like my softs were below average. The non-MA/PR Latinx bump might actually be bigger if you can really sell it. But if I had to guess, you're most likely out at HYS and have a decent shot at most of the other T14s (maybe except Columbia because they tend to like higher LSATs). I'd still shoot for a retake regardless though for scholarship purposes. Also feel free to PM me for more details. Good luck!
