Really Quick Question--Wharton

<p>Hi guys, I am a rising junior and wanted to ask a quick question to the Wharton savants. Would the fact that my father's company was listed in Forbes Magazine (sometime in 2001-2004, cannot recall at the moment) as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in America (like around 46 I believe) count towards my Wharton application? He was CEO and founder (probably a good essay topic but not worth anything right?). I have good standardized test scores, a decent GPA, and an impressive course rigor. However, my ECs are lackluster at best. I am going to try to differentiate myself through the physics olympiad next year (fingers crossed). I posted this at the end of my chances thread but not a single person replied so I just wanted a quick answer to this question. Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Not unless his company donates $$$$$ or is in the Fortune 500.</p>

<p>I can guarantee that it won't help you unless you are involved in the company in some way. You are the one applying, not your father.</p>

<p>I was going to say exactly what superman1028 said, but it seems like he beat me to it! You've gotta be involved with the company.</p>
