USNA Underrepresented Minority Asian Question


Aug 15, 2017
Does anybody know the status of URM at USNA for Asians along with first generation American and first generation college student? (More specifically Vietnamese or anybody of Southeast Asian Descent excluding those of East Asian origin) How does the first gen American and College student play into admissions? Like do they have a set number of that certain criteria (First Gen) and compare your candidate package with those? Or you are ranked nationally with everybody else?

I attended NASS 2017 and there seemed to be quite a few Asians but mostly white people
To the best of my knowledge Asians are not a URM at USNA and are not treated as such. Pretty much true at all the academies as I recall from past threads. You could do a search to read said threads, which I'm sure go into more detail.
