<p>Hi, I'm a high school senior planning to apply to Boston University ED.
Well, i'm from New r my stats:</p>

<p>I have LOTS of community service. I also tutored at an at-risk middle school for 5 years. And I tutor a 5th grader and a 5 year old. </p>

<p>I think my test scores will really hurt SATs. I'm taking the SAT IIs in November. </p>

<p>Oh, senior year classes:

AP ENglish
AP Biology

US History

<p>People have been telling me that its an advantage as a Asian girl from NM but I dunno...I have good extra curriculars but do you think I will have a chance at Boston
Yale (WAYY reach)
Stanford (Ditto)</p>

<p>oh oops i forgot to add more schools before i submitted it
UT Austin
UNM (haha University of New Mexico...pathetic lol)</p>

<p>Come one, ANYONE?????????????</p>

<p>on* oopppsss</p>

<p>You are an asian girl in NM. That's pretty unique. YOu can talk about how you feel different at school from all the mexican kids and cowboys...and talk about how you adjust afterwards. Try to think of an interesting little event.</p>

<p>I think you have a great chance at BU. Your stats are in the right range and you have a lot of activities.</p>

<p>Unfortunately, even if you're Asian in Tijuana you still don't get AA. Even if you live in a very Mexican state like New Mexico, the statistics are still clear - 50% of the Asians in the US of age 25 hold Bachelor's degrees, while only 11.5% of Latinos (all latinos, mind you). Thesefore it's somewhat illogical. I bet even New Mexico colleges aren't too Mexican, although I haven't looked into it.</p>
