I am a first generation college undergrad. Both of my parents did not complete middle school. I am mexican american. When I was younger, my mother was on welfare to support 5 kids including me. My father was always in and out of jail, not helping financially. He had a heroin addiction. When I was 12 he passed away from a heroin overdose. My family is poor as you can guess since its being led by a single mother who makes just about minimum wage. I received grants to go to college where I have acquired a cumulative gpa of 3.5. At the university I go to now i have a gpa of 3.8 with 4.0 in science. Im taking the mcat in a few weeks. I was just wondering if I am considered disadvantaged.
