It probably depends on what "of Mexican descent" means- are you a new immigrant, or has your family been in the US for hundreds of years, or are you somewhere in between?

If you identify as a Mexican, you could expect around a 3-7 point boost on the LSAT. Depending on the needs of the school, it could even be a little more.
