Will Questbridge applications give you that extra bump in college admissions?

<p>Hey guys, I was just wondering how much emphasis is put on the Questbridge applications and if they can help play a role in getting you accepted. I will be applying to some top schools (Stanford, MIT, Caltech, etc.) and I was wondering if two applicants were roughly equal but one applied with a Questbridge application would that give them the extra boost they need to get accepted to top universities? My friend who got Matched with Princeton this last year told me that QB apps go through minorities but I haven't heard anyone else say that yet so is this true? And also, are QB apps treated differently because they have so much more information about the applicant? Thanks!</p>
