As I am filling out supplemental applications every school keeps asking for my race...It is a little tricky for me because I am Hispanic but that is not a race, so I do not know what race to select. Any advice? Also I am Ecuadorian but born and raised in US if that helps.

I usually just leave these types of questions blank but the schools say to select one

There is a part on AADSAS where you can say you consider yourself "of hispanic origin."

I understand but on the supplementary it asks you if you are Hispanic and then another separate question asking you what is your race. Hispanic is not a race so it does not fulfill the race question.

Me too lol.
This is just an example of the supplementary application, almost all others are just like this as well.
Do you see where it is two separate questions, unlike in the AADSAS application?
I would specify in "other" if you are required to answer it. I am of a non-white race too, but I did my best to leave those blank if I could.

Fill in other if you absolutely have to I guess.

I swear people will stretch what they believe their race is if it gives them an advantage. A colleague of mine who is Filipino said that "I'm going to identify as a Pacific Islander to get an advantage". I just shook my head...
In a world where men born with male parts can identify as a woman and use female restrooms, I'll be damned if I can't put that I consider myself Hispanic if my grandfather and grandmother were Central American
