how much of a bump do Mexicans typically get?
« on: November 06, 2006, 09:39:06 PM »
So I am applying to LS for 07. How much of a bump would a Mexican-American get for LSAT and GPA. I want numbers like "0.25" for GPA, or '2' LSAT points as exaples...concrete numbers. When I applied to Grad school (and got in) I 'declined to state.' Yeah I used to be more idealistic in my youth (a few years ago), but after getting kicked in the teeth by life and love, I feel like I must take advantage of whatever opportunities I can. I don't do it for myself, but for the wife and kids (I don't actually have kids yet, and have never actually been married). So help me.

It seems (from LSN and first hand experience) that Mexican women get a slightly better "bump" than men.
