Cuban 171/3.43

Postby mrm2083 » Wed Jan 27, 2010 1:39 pm

So most of the schools I applied to I'm kind of a 50/50 chance, which schools do you guys think the non-urm Hispanic will put me over the edge for. I applied first week of january.
- U Penn
- UVA
- Duke
- Cornell
- Georgetown
- UCLA
- USC
- Vanderbilt

- I have moderate softs but some are kind of interesting: Started my own online business (not super successful though), Member/VP of my schools wakeboarding team (competed at nationals), minor in film, wrote my diversity statement on being a native spanish speaker and overcoming language barriers and helping others do the same.

My guess....
Penn-WL...then dinged
Virginia-WL...then dinged
Duke-WL..then in
Cornell-WL..then in
Georgetown-WL then dinged
UCLA-WL then in
USC-In
Vandy-WL then in

But take this all with a grain of salt...for I am no expert.

Is Cuban really not considered a URM? I thought all Hispanics were URMs but they just received different levels of the URM boost?

Cubans are indeed not considered URMs by LSAC. Whether or not a school gives them a boost to improve minority and diversity numbers varies by school.

Cubans are, indeed, URMs!
