<p>My sister goes to princeton and will graduate in 2008. Does this fact help me in admissions significantly.</p>
<p>It's not really a legacy, but I think the adcom would like a Princeton family.</p>
<p>P.S. I wanted to ask you about your flower but just realized it's an ICQ</p>
<p>Am I a legacy? I'm a descendant of Princeton's founding president :)
I should be, lol....</p>
<p>I don't think siblings count as legacy, officially they don't help you, but since they do ask on the app, I'm sure they care...</p>
<p>Yep...descendant of Jonathan Edwards and Aaron Burr Sr. (and Jr., though we don't talk about him :) )</p>
<p>-Maybe I should mention that on my app in an offhand way...how funny...</p>
<p>How did you include that in the app?</p>
oops i guess you just answered my question, but I think you should throw it in! lol</p>
<p>Yeah, I think I will. Can't hurt, can it?
Another funny Princeton situation..the father of this guy who stalks my little sister is really close friends with Shirley Tilghman (sp?)...maybe I can convince her to go out with the guy...
Wow, that would be a horrible thing to do. Still funny to think of though...ahh, the possibilites are endless.</p>
<p>"the father of this guy who stalks my little sister"...
does anyone else see something wrong with that?</p>
<p>My headmaster went to Princeton ( a loong time ago) but I think that's why we have a good relationship with them (as opposed to with Yale and Harvard)</p>
<p>well, not actually 'stalks'...he just calls her every night and she has to make up excuses for trying to get off the phone...he tells people he's dating her...it's sort of comical, actually. He's not that creepy, just has a major crush.</p>
<p>Awww...that's kinda cute...I guess...
and that would be easy to use to your advantage...hmm</p>
<p>Oh Aaron Burr... I don't think I need to say anything more than that.</p>
<p>That's pretty cool, though. I don't think I have any interesting ancestors... <em>waves the Irish/English/German "mutt" flag around proudly</em></p>
<p>lol, i'm supposed to be a descendant of ghengis khan but i don't think that helps? he probably has a thousand descendants</p>
