I know there is a URM board, but I asked a question a few weeks ago and basically got no answers. I have just recently started hearing about this URM concept. I am Hispanic, and am applying for 08 admission. I would say I have pretty ok stats, but I am taking the MCAT may 16 and things aren't looking to good right now. My highest VR score has been an 8 and I can't get it much higher, while my sciences are around 10-12 each... So how big of a deal is it to be classified as a URM just in general in the whole app process. Is it taken into account pre/post interview? Thanks!
