You know more than I then. Are you a legacy?

Not exactly... Pops went to b-school, not law.

So what exactly do you want to know about the legacy issue at Harvard? Legacy status is considered a "soft factor" in the admission process.

It doesn't appear to be a factor at all because there's nowhere to include the info on the app..

Exactly. But if you know someone at Harvard, all it takes is a phone call. Did you apply to Harvard?

Yep..  I don't know anyone there and I haven't mentioned it to my dad cuz we're not really tight like that.

Well you never know. RBG and myself both got accepted and we are on opposite sides of the field in terms of extras, stats, etc... He wrote a book...I'm just a regular UG LOL. You never know what they are looking for. But rumor has it that they already filled 60% of their incoming class already.

Hey mob...

What's consider super qualified? I'm confused....that word is so subjective.
