I am fluent in Spanish and have a Guatemalan grandfather, so I usually put down Hispanic, and it bothers me when forms ask "Caucasian non-Hispanic."

Why not both?

However, a teacher once said that I have a strong Anglo-Saxon name. Well, no, it is Scottish. Basically Gringo McGringo, but hey.

Well, you could just exert your inherent, systemic, white male, patriarchal privilege. You know, that Ace in the pocket us privileged folk lord over those we oppress.

I actually have no advice except try hard, or possibly try to get into a less competitive program. There is the numbers game too, where you just apply to many programs and the odds of getting into at least 1 goes way up.

My brother's SLP always says that I would automatically be accepted because I am a male Veteran and I ask "Who does that benefit?!"

Males are the minority in speech therapy, my last supervisor said that men in male-dominated fields always tried to exclude women, while women in female-dominated fields always tried to include men.

Yes, that was why we spent so much time playing hide-and-seek. Well, they hid, and I tried to find them, but they just told me to go back to the meeting.
