      Dartmouth and Brown strongly prefer non-trads. Switch them for a school like Ohio State/Vermont/Penn State, which are all solid mid-tier picks.

      Remember that Hispanic URMs include Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Dominican-Americans, and Haitian-Americans, probably with some other groups. Many South American groups and Cuban-Americans, as well as people from Spain, are not considered URM.
