it's like when your parents went to UW, right?

does it help alot in getting you admitted?

if both my parents went to UW, and my sibling aswell, is that a triple legacy?

just curious

    If your parents have been regular donors, yes it will help, sometimes a lot.

    i've heard that it doesn't help at someplace as big as the UW. Although they aren't using the academic index anymore, so it might help, but i still think they care way more about grades, etc. than legacies, especially because at the UW there would be ALOT of people applying who are sibs or legacies.
