About 11-12 years ago, when I was an undergrad at a certain Ivy League school, I loved my legal studies class so much that I seriously considered law school. I stopped by the LS admission office and asked them if being an undergraduate student at this institution gave me any advantages in the application process. What they told me wasn't a resounding yes, but they did say that about 10% of admitted students every year had been undergrads from the same school.
I would like to know what different folks' experiences are on the subject. Does it hold true, in general?
And specifically, which is really what I am asking here
, does it hold true when you are so many years out of college?
