I am a student from a middle class family on the west side. I am fortunate enough to have a very successful grandfather (a general in the navy and a physician) who donated tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to his alma mater, Harvard U. I have a 3.993 unweighted GPA, a 2240 sat, and a lot of other stuff typical of CC enthusiasts. I was wondering this: how do I go about telling harvard about my grandfather’s contributions on the common app? Also, do you think that his contributions will help me get admission?
Thanks so much.
PS: I want to apply EA. Also, please no hate. If you want to be mean, go beat up a porcupine.
