What are the advantages of being first generation?
I’m a first generation college applicant. Neither of my parents even went to high school. I know that being first gen is an advantage, but how exactly?? Like, what changes in the admissions officer’s mind when they see that I’m first gen? In what ways do they evaluate me differently that would give me an advantage?12 replies
