Hey! I was just wondering, do UK schools like LSE or Cambridge consider legacy admissions? Meaning is there a slightly higher chance you'll be admitted somewhere if your grandfather or mother went there? Thanks!

    Nope. That's illegal. You don't even get in anymore because your father is the Prime Minister (ask Tony Blair) or the future King of England (ask Prince William).

    Okay good, that's what I wanted to hear. I was just wondering because that is how it is with American systems.

    American admission system is corrupt, even without legacy, you can outright buy a seat at any elite college with a fat enough check. Legacy isn’t the only problem with this system.
