You recently requested data on Asian-American cadets at the United States Military Academy. Attached to his note is an excel spreadsheet which provides the information. Be sure to read the footnotes carefully, particularly those explaining our GPA computation.

Also, we reviewed your website and the data you display for years prior to this. We pointed out last year at this time that there were some significant errors in the data relating to USMA. We note that the same errors remain. I will send you next week the accurate figures for classes that you list prior to 2002.
