Just wondering how much this influences admission.

    Legacy at most schools is a small plus factor. It will not overcome lackluster grades or ECs, for example, or poor recs.

    BC doesn't formally release their admissions criteria, so it's not really known if they even consider being a legacy in admissions (they probably do). What bluebayou said is probably true for BC.
