What kind of Latina? Mexican or Puerto Rican?

I think your list is pretty good. Have you thought about retaking? A few points could do a lot for you with your URM status.

Thanks!

I've thought about retaking in December, but I'm not sure if it's better to hold my apps for the results or just take my chances with my 160. Any thoughts?

I'd like to start this fall.
