I am half spanish. My father is from argentina (and is a cardiologist) while my mom is from new orleans (she is a nurse). I was wondering if I should play the "race" card when applying to CRNA school? I have never used it before, though my brother and sister have. My sister is getting her masters at Savannah College of Art and Desigin with a minority scholarship totaling $40,000 while my brother is getting a FULL RIDE at LSU law school on a similar minority scholarship. My mom says I should since black/spanish CRNA's make less than 2% of the profession. However, I'm more american than most americans! My grandfathers on my mom side actually fought in Korea, WWII, WWI, and the civil war! I hardly speak spanish, love hunting and fishing, love the new orleans saints, etc... I only look spanish and thats it! Also, would this help me getting into CRNA school? Should I use it like in the application process, for scholarships, in the personal letter to the CRNA admissions council, etc???
