Questbridge- should i even apply?
I recently found out about the Questbridge program and got really into what it was promoting (helping low income students). I, being one of those low income students, was thinking about applying. I looked at the stas of the past winners, however, and noticed that more than 70% of winners are first generations. My family's income is definitely under $60,000, not even close actually, but I am not a first generation. In fact, both of my parents graduated college. Even worse, I am not a URM.
My stats will be on par with an average Questbridge applicant, if slightly better, in terms of the SAT score and ECs. How important is the first generation status for Questbridge? Is low income and few assets more emphasized? Should I even apply? Please help me out!
