If that's the case, then he's easily going to get shut out of the T14 with a 3.5/167, and it doesn't look like he applied anywhere below that.
I'm actually part Argentinean and part Puerto Rican, though when asked to specify one type of latino, I say south american because that is a bit closer in my family tree. I mention my Argentinean/Puerto Rican background in my PS. I've been pretty active in minority advocacy groups, including a Puerto Rican-specific group, so I'm pretty sure that schools understand my background, and how its a mix of cultures. But for statistical purposes, I checked both south american and puerto rican at most schools, but just south american if pressed for a single choice. Not sure how schools view multicultural applicants who have a mix of what would be considered a URM and non-URM background.
Edit: I looked back to my UVA application, and it allowed for multiple checks, and I checked both "Other Hispanic" and "Puerto Rican", so how they decide which is more pertinent is entirely up to them.
