Son of MIT employee - improved chances?
I couldn't find an answer to this anywhere so I figured I'd ask here. My dad is a scientist at Lincoln Lab in Lexington, MA, and is employed by MIT. He is not "faculty" and is in no way associated with academia; he is in military research. If (a rather big "if") I were to be accepted into MIT, I would receive free tuition because of his employment status, but I was wondering if my chances of being admitted could be improved by the mere fact that MIT employs him. The rest of my application would probably reveal me to be qualified for MIT but unlikely to be accepted. Thanks for the help.
