Do you guys think you get any props for knowing spanish or being a spanish major (specifically in cities where this could be advantageous)? Just thought it would be preferential, but who knows ... anybody hear any adcom talk about that?

Spanish is a definite plus. Translators are always needed on rounds. If you are fluent in Spanish, by all means, advertise it.

OK... well.. since I don't speak Spanish I have no idea what anyone has been saying on this string since the first post, but I can tell you that NYU, in particular, says they consider Spanish as a definate plus; in general, any metropolitan-area med. school will know that it is advantageous for a doctor (particularly a PCP) to...how you say... habla espanol... ;)
