170/3.87

Postby jravae » Tue Dec 28, 2010 8:17 pm

Undergrad at UCLA. Haven't applied yet, which I know will definitely hurt me. I really, really don't want to wait another year, though, so I'll be applying now.
I think I'm considered URM based on some letters I've gotten from law schools. I check the Hispanic box, along with White and Asian. I am 1/4 Mexican, half White.
Any chance at: Stanford, Columbia, NYU or Cal at this point?

Gracias.

Your basing your URM status off letters youve gotten from schools?
That is all self selection.... they send letters based on what you say....

Well, I wasn't sure if I was really considered URM since I'm of mixed race. But I've received several letters from law schools referring specifically to my Hispanic heritage. So yeah, based on that I think that I'm being considered URM.

With your numbers you have a shot at any of those schools even if you aren't URM. If you do qualify as URM then you should also be applying to H/Y.

If you're 1/4 Mexican you are Mexican as far as schools are concerned I think. Enjoy HYS.
