<p>I have a friend who has similar GPA, SAT score, classes, and AP scores as I do.
The only differences being, he did soccer when I took dance, he went to public school (his class: 500 studnets) all four years when I transferred to a small private catholic school (my class: 100 students) as a sophomore and am planning to attend this school until I graduate, AND HIS DAD & HIS GRANDPA went to UMich.</p>
<p>We both did EA for UMich, he got in but I got deferred. :(</p>
<p>I was just wondering if the whole family alum thing benefit in anyway...</p>
