My best friend is a plain-out New England WASP. She wishes not to join CC but instead wants to use me as her Abraham.

Both of my best friend's parents are Harvard alumni (mother of Radcliffe, father of Harvard Law). Her mother's father is a Yale alumnus, as are his 12 siblings. Her grand-uncle was a trustee of Yale University and was top contender for university presidency (however graced by Timothy Dwight).

Will Yale see view her as a legacy?
