College Assignment Question

<p>Whenever you're assigned to one of the colleges in the summer, does having a family member being an alumnus at one of the colleges affect which one you'll be assigned to? The reason I ask is because my cousin attended Rice around a decade ago (originally in Baker, transferred to Martel), and I was wondering if that'd have any influence on where I'll end up. :)</p>

<p>If you have family, you are given the choice of family members college or other. If you pick their college, that is where you will be. If other, you will be placed randomly in one of the other colleges.</p>

<p>I am not sure what counts as family. I would check with Rice to see if cousins count or it needs to be a direct sibling or parent.</p>

<p>Okay, thanks! That's good to know- I can't wait to find out either way in a few months!</p>
