International/hispanic Admissions

As a student from Costa Rica, when applying to US universities will I be grouped under the "Hispanic" ethnic group or will I be compared with other international students from all over the world?

You'll be seen as an international student. You may get grouped into Latin America when you're being evaluated but that would depend on the school.
