ethnic background!

<p>Okay, so i was wondering if, since both my parents are from Lebanon, that will increase or decrease my chances at an ivy league university. Thanks for the help</p>

<p>Neither, particularly.</p>

<p>If your parents are educated and your circumstances were reasonably comfortable and secure, then it doesn't matter what their country of origin is. If, on the other hand, your parents are not highly educated, or if you come from a family in which your circumstances were not comfortable and secure, it still doesn't really matter what their country of origin is.</p>

<p>There are some colleges and universities that value ethnic and geographic diversity and want to increase the diversity of their population. The Ivies do tend to value diversity, but they also don't tend to want for ethnic, geographical or socioeconomic diversity in their applicant pool.</p>

<p>ok, thanks for the help</p>
