<p>On the website it says:
15. Does Columbia give preference in the admission process to applicants whose parents attended Columbia?
We are always pleased to receive applications from students whose family members have graduated from Columbia. When an applicant is extremely competitive and compares favorably with other similarly talented candidates, being the daughter or son of a Columbia University graduate (from any Columbia school or college) may be a slight advantage in the admission process. This advantage may especially apply for “legacy” candidates. Please note: applicants are only considered to be a “legacy” of Columbia if they are the child of an undergraduate alumnus/a of Columbia College or of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science.
My dad got an MBA at Columbia, does that count? How much will it help me for undergraduate admissions?</p>
