Thanks for the insight. I do think that Native Americans must get some type of AA. I do find it crazy that Virginia (I read parts of that study) barely gives any AA to hispanics. I also find it crazy that sometimes Cubans aren't given the same AA boost as Mexicans.
Just my opinion...
As for NA, can't say. There's 1 in all of SLS, I believe, so there's not too many to make any kind of generalization. There might be more in certain schools that waive tuition for certain tribe members (in Michigan, for example) that might have a bigger population, though.
And Cubans aren't usually given the same boost as Mexicans, but I'd like to think that the schools look deeper than that. For ex, there are some Cuban refugees (especially post-80s) who are worst off than some of the wealthy Mexicans here.
