There isn't a need to hate on anyone with a 176. If I had a 176 I wouldn't care about where you mugs get in. No offense :mrgreen:



I'm not hating on her for having a 176, I’m hating on her because she made a completely unnecessary comment to shit on HeavenWood’s achievements. He/She may have a 166 but it got him/her into the 8th best school in the nation, so there is no need for sophie to be a bitch lol

It's also easy to remember TLS' most caustic posters (and considering we're a caustic group of people in general, being specifically remembered for your bad attitude is a real accomplishment).

Reading this thread makes me wish I had applied to some reach schools instead of just EDing a perfect fit.

Meh. I'm accepted to a great school anyway. I guess it's just a case of

GPA: 4.0 , LSAT 163
URM: No (but I am Hispanic)

School: University of Pennsylvania, ED

Finally, what you think (totally subjective) got you into that school: Well... I don't really know. (I am still in shock.) My PS was good. I wrote a Diversity Statement about living in poverty and moving around quite a bit as an adolescent. My softs are good, but I didn't cure cancer nor am I Rhodes Scholar...

4.0 is awesome, but this is still a great success
CONGRATS! Penn is amazing.

Looks like a lot of non MX/PR hispanics are getting a boost this year! I hope TLSers start encouraging "other hispanics" to apply to more reaches instead of discouraging them by saying there won't be a boost. So far this cycle I have seen 3 acceptances to T14 to 163/3.8+ "other hispanics": me- Michigan ED, masterthearts- GULC, snow- Penn ED. Anyways, congrats to everyone getting into reach schools!


There can definitely be a boost for "other Hispanics." It's just much less of a sure thing than an AA, NA, Mexican, or Puerto Rican boost.

ziggie wrote:I agree with you that it is less, I just remember asking about my chances several times and getting the same answer every time, that I would get NO boost. Maybe it was just due to a lack of evidence that other hispanics would get a boost, but as I mentioned before, there have been at least 3 people this cycle who benefited from one. You're right, it is less than the URM boost and more unpredictable, but there is one, and the TLS advice in those cases should be to apply broadly. Oh one more thing, I really think that admissions people recognize that there is a big difference in the amount of diversity a person who is connected to their hispanic heritage can bring as opposed to someone who checks their hispanic box because one of their parents is hispanic.

Sorry if it seems like I derailed this thread, but I think this could explain how I (and a couple of others in this thread) made it into my reach. :D


Are you saying that the TLS consensus is occasionally wrong?! LIES!!!

Haha honestly, I have found that it is usually right, aside from some outliers/pessimists, but completely wrong in this case

Wow! I am so glad to read that. I realize the TLS stance is that there is no boost (or at most a very small boost) for being "other Hispanic." It is nice to see that maybe that isn't as correct. I think everyone should try (if they can financially) for at least one Hail Mary in his/her cycle.

Yep! Either we got a boost or 163 is just a magic number haha
Congrats again, Penn is awesome! And nice 4.0
