3.8/170/possible URM (details inside)

Postby ttorres93 » Wed Nov 28, 2012 1:51 pm

I have a 3.8 in polysci, a 170 on my LSAT, and I'm 1/4 Mexican. However, I look white, speak no Spanish, and on previous college apps have marked myself as Hispanic/White instead of Hispanic/Mexican. Would I still be able to qualify as an URM like this, or would I have to self-identify as Mexican and Hispanic? Probably a dumb question, but I just want to make sure there won't be any problems down the line.

Given this info, what are my chances for T14? Thanks in advance.

Several T14 applications this year don't even have Hispanic/Mexican "boxes". Check whatever you want, and write a diversity statement about how being 1/4th Mexican makes you thuper thpecial.

Unless you check African American or put down an NA tribe you don't actually belong to, I doubt you'll have any problems with C&F regardless.

That said, have fun at H/S/full ride at T14.
