Now, I know, for example that at Penn Law and Georgetown Law (and probably almost every law school for that matter) that the undergraduate schools that are most represented are the respective undergraduate programs at that university. I'm sure this has to do with the higher rate of applications coming from these undergraduate programs. But, to what extent do schools, especially the Top 14, take into account that the application is coming from 'within the family?'
I have heard that schools are discouraged from taking their own students. I have heard that schools like to reward their own undergraduates. Thoughts?
