I guess all I've got to say now is... chance me? And is there anything to improve? Thanks</p>

<p>Where are you from?
If you're from Texas, you're in. Keep in mind that the cut-off for NMF is a 217 in Texas. You will also have to turn in your Business Honors application by October 15th so that you can get a decision by...around this time I think (around early December). You have great stats and everything. Be sure to turn in your application with your revised essays as early as you can, along with your required items (transcript, fee waivers, and all those goodies). You might want to get some AP classes just so you can be competitive for the BHP. I don't know if BHP requires letters of recommendation, but it wouldn't hurt you to get them. </p>

<p>And lastly, do you classify yourself as white or Hispanic? </p>

<p>^ Hispanic is an ethnicity and white is a race. Therefore you can classify yourself as a Hispanic white, just like you can say you are a Hispanic Asian or a Hispanic African American. They are two different things.</p>

<p>I see... I didn't know that lol. Well, actually I did--I'm just a retard haha. Anyway, the OP needs to say whether of not she's from Texas, in which case she is guaranteed a spot no matter.how much she messes up her senior year ( I'm kidding, I'm kidding!).</p>
