    Many schools give additional consideration to ppl whose parents went to that school. I know, I don't think its particularly fair either.

    Yeah, I hate that too...

    Just for fun I'd like to put "yes, my aunt's husband's cousin's adopted daughter's father's brother went to your school... "

    a lot of places guarentee and interview if you are related or attended their undergrad (i.e. cornell) - but getting in is another matter - you can still definately be rejected, but i'm sure it helps a bit.

    My grandfather went to UCSF. Sure didn't help me! I wouldn't worry about it. If you start obsessing about how or why everyone else got won't be able to concentrate on yourself.
