    I was looking over the USNA Class of 2013 profile and I noticed that admissions listed non-english as a primary language at home, and I was wondering how that is important to the admissions board (I'm a korean speaker at home).

    It's one way to gage diversity.

    That is just a demographic of the Class of 2013 not a list prerequisites. It is intended as a guide to the composition of the specific class. Were you to compare it the demographics of a group of recently inducted classes you would see that they are very similar in terms of class standing, ECAs, etc. It is intended as a guide to prospects and candidates.

    One of the reasons USNA asks about non-English being spoken at home is that it MAY explain a low verbal test score.
