First generation college student

Postby Mrs0046 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 11:22 pm

Hi all. I’m currently a sophomore in my undergrad with a 3.7 GPA. I’m a first generation college student, and a minority. Do these things help boost law school admission?

The latter much more so than the former, but they both help.

Also note that underrepresented minorities (URMs) for law school admissions purposes are limited to Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, African-Americans and Native Americans. Other minorities (Asians, non-Mexican Hispanics, Middle Easterners, etc.) aren't considered URMs for law school admissions purposes. They may still provide a soft boost around the edges but I wouldn't expect any large effect.
