And OP, your GPA is all over the map. You don't have a history of academic success, so why go to a professional school that is brutally dependent upon both prior and future academics?

trust, when you're a mexican, you know you're a mexican. theres no confusion.


I was referring to the extent of an admissions bump you'll receive as a Mexican, because it's both uncertain and variable. I don't think it's as strong a bump as it is for native americans and black people. Your people weren't a victim of genocide or slavery, after all.

OP the only advice you're gonna get here is:

1.) You're not guaranteed to be dinged, but your LSAT score is too low for comfort
2.) Retake

This is dumb. Law school performance isn't dependent upon prior academics. LSAC's study showed a ~.2 correlation between 1L grades and UGPA. I wouldn't call that brutally dependent.

I haven't been following this thread, but there is a non-negligible bump for MA applicants. It only gets murky with the 'hispanic' distinction.
