Am I Hispanic?

BlueOzoneBlueOzone 0 replies1 postsRegistered User New Member
I am 1/4 Mexican (through my mom so I don't have a Hispanic last name) and 3/4 European and look super white. Do I count as Hispanic? Should I put on my college applications that I'm white Hispanic or just white? Sorry, I know this has been asked a lot before.

    No. Based on how you describe your situation. Unless you consider yourself Hispanic in your approach to the world and your day to day affairs. Language heritage and viewpoints. It’s not a way to determine 23 and me type numbers. It’s to help underrepresented groups and to enhance the diversity on campus.
    But I don’t have the common app in front of me and recall it’s a two question sequence. Maybe others would have a more specific answer.

    Hispanic is an ethnicity. White is a race. You can be both hispanic and white at the same time. Two separate questions.

    It sounds to me like you're Hispanic. Your last name and race don't matter. Hispanic is an ethnicity. You can choose Hispanic and enter white for race.
