Famous Alumni Question (My First Post)

<p>I have a distant relationship to a famous alumni at a prominent LAC (Class of 1929). He is my father's great aunt's cousin. I know that sounds pretty hard to believe, but my dad knew him pretty well because his cousins lived on the guy's estate. Is this worth mentioning on the app?</p>

<p>No. 10char...</p>

<p>No. This man has little relation to you and it is unlikely he has affected your life significantly.</p>

<p>mitchum, I don't think it's worth mentioning on your app (except maybe if the lac you're talking about is small or if he had a major accomplishment there?).. and.. ignore the sarcastic responses..</p>

<p>i apologized to the op (at least i think so). if i didnt i am now. just this whole cc is so tense (including myself) we need to be a little bit light about topics. i know i know. if it was me posting i dont know if i would be to happy with my kind of response. but i think you get the point; such a distant relative will not really help. and besides, it's about you! make yourself shine, im sure you can. k sorry if that was really cheesy but i must overcompensate, im really not as obnoxious in real life :p</p>

<p>So..Kevin Bacon and six degrees of separation come to mind...</p>

<p>Hahah I didn't expect to incite such an issue..</p>

<p>Of course I was just kidding around. I apologize if I've crushed the OP hopelessly (and if I have, I sincerely hope s/he can get over it fairly quickly).</p>

<p>..unless you can get the person to put in a good word about you..</p>
