<p>My daughter's grandfather (my dad) was a Dept. Chair at Barnard, and also taught at Columbia. Would this count as a legacy when my daughter applies to Barnard? Thanks!</p>
<p>No. If he still has contacts there it could help, but profs who are not currently powerful at any selective college have trouble getting their own kids in.</p>

If he didn't graduate from Barnard, then no.</p>
