I am 1/8th native american, and I was wondering if this could in anyway be counted in my application or not. I didn't see anything on the website, but I wasn't sure if it was possible. :confused:
1/8 Lebanese does that count?

What is considered a minority?
Do you have the written directions for the SA application? As I recall there are detailed directions on how to answer every question on the application. Go to the written directions for clarification and it you still cannot decide how to answer that question, then send an email to Admissions or call them and ask.
The USNA site just says:

Race and Ethnicity: You may decline to respond to these cues, but the Naval Academy requests that you answer these truthfully in order to aid our statistics compilations. Enter all that apply (You must select at least one response for race (more than one may be entered), but only one ethnicity must be selected).

So I think I may just contact admissions instead
