Boost for a specific URM?

Postby Barbie » Mon Jun 27, 2011 6:14 pm

My friend is half puerto rican, half arab... she would like to know what sort of admissions boost she will get and I have no idea. Thanks!

She will get a normal URM boost because she is PR. It will generally be less than an AA or NA boost but it will still be very substantial and close to those with AA/NA boosts. It is hard to pin down the exact difference between AA/NA/PR/MX so it makes no sense to attach a single number to it.

Suffice it to say she should use all the URMs on LSN to give her an idea on her chances (not just the MX/PR ones).
