In general, the answer is "sort of - not really." But individual schools do things by their own standards, and Harvard has its own Cuban-American student association (in the undergrad) and a Cuban-American UG admissions officer, so they might consider Cuban students as minority students (per their own standards). In your case, the answer is "maybe."
I realize this isn't an exceptionally helpful post, but that's the best that I can offer you. It is probably the best that anyone who isn't affiliated with Harvard can offer you.
Thank you! It actually did help. This is what I figured. My LSAT score is so low that I kind of saw me being waitlisted as a joke and haven't really tried sending them extra information because of this. But now seeing that low URM scores are getting JR1s is making me regret my decision. Sending in my LOCI tomorrow!
I actually never sent a LOCI in and got one of the JR1 emails today, I figured they know they're Harvard so they probably know exactly how bad I want to get in, without me telling them.
That's what I've been thinking. Reading LOCIs must just make them laugh. Everyone wants to go to Harvard! Hmmm you have me rethinking my rethinking haha
