Difference between a "tip" and a "hook?"
In another thread, someone says being first gen is a "hook" and someone else says it's a "tip." What is the difference between the two? And is legacy a tip or hook? I keep telling a friend whose father is a famous alumni (has spoken at graduation, on cover of alumni magazine etc...) of a T20 school that it's a "hook" for her child who is applying (and her son has the grades and test scores to get in - doesn't need a bump) but now I think I have no idea what I'm actually talking about, lol.4 replies
