recommendation...from FAMILY????

so i just talked to my cousin who goes to harvard…shes a senior this year.

what might happen if she wrote a rec for me? i know that its biased because shes a family member and all, but would it play a role at all in my admission? i was curious because she said that she’d be willing to do that for me, even tho shes aware that it may not do much…

any input?

<p>nope, don't do it. schools don't want to see this sort of information. some specifically tell you not to.</p>

<p>i agreee, it's useless. It would be very biased, and the school is more likely to throw it out the window than to actually read it</p>
