    I guess...every once in a while I meet a kid whose last name is the same as a building on the quad, lol.

    My grandpa went to Tufts for both undergrad and med school, and my cousin (who went to Phillips Andover) was rejected - she was admitted to Harvard and now attends UChicago. However, my uncle went to Harvard for both undergrad and med school, and was fairly active with alumni stuff there I believe, so it might not just be "Tufts syndrome"; I don't really know how her grades/scores were. That would seem to indicate to me, though, that her legacy status didn't help her much.
