    Your application looks pretty solid. I'm not trying to be racist or anything but your race will definitely help you along the way. I also live in Florida and it is often the minority students that end up getting accepted to top schools despite lower scores. I have heard of a minority student who received a 1320 on the SAT and got into Princeton around where I live. The only challenge for you, in my opinion, would be Georgetown but your legacy will definitely help you. Good luck!

    UNC-Chapel Hill will be difficult as a non-resident unless substantial consideration is given to your URM Hispanic status.

    Georgetown & UNC are unlikely.

    NYU will be expensive if you are offered admission.

    BC is a match.

    FSU & Fordham should admit you.

    University of Florida should accept you.

    If NYU is stern (as I assume), that’s probably a reach RD.
    Fordham should be solid match.
    BC probably a match.
    UNC for OOS and Gtown reaches.
    Never looked at Florida schools so can’t comment on those.
