Does having connections w/ wealthy people and alumni really help ur college app?
Do connections such as these really help students get into college...
- Knowing wealthy, affluent alumni that will write letters (They may or may not donate to their school, I haven't asked them)
- Having connections with a state representative that is also willing to write a letter of recommendation
- Belonging to a very wealthy family
...Please keep in mind that these circumstances are for college applications to top selective universities such as Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Columbia, NYU among others.
(This question is completely hypothetical and I'm not saying any of this applies to me at all. I'm just curious I don't need a bunch of "haters" in here.)
