    I’m a student at UMass Amherst and am also out-of-state (New York)Let’s round your GPA up to a 3.1, which translates to an average of 86/100. This isn’t bad at all. The average for admitted students is an 89-90, so they do admit students with that GPA. Make sure you get those SAT scores up though, as those will help your chances of being admitted.I don’t think applying as an Hispanic will make much of a difference, because UMass Amherst is not an affirmative action school. Actually….I suggest you do put yourself as Hispanic.Good luck!
