First Gen

<p>Anyone know how first generation factors into admissions? Does it help a little, a lot....?</p>

<p>I think it doesn't really matter. Most schools look for second, thirds, fourth, etc as more "beneficial" to their school.</p>

<p>It helps for sure. How much will depend on the school.</p>

<p>You're thinking about legacies, buddy. The op is asking about a first-generation college applicants (as in, the parents didn't attend college). And, to set the record straight, it's a decent advantage -- and will help you especially if you're "borderline."</p>

<p>bump please</p>
