i'm a california resident who has applied to all the UCs. i have only received a secondary from uc irvine. my grandfather went to graduate school at uc davis and is a somewhat prominent scientist. since there is no way davis would know that, i guess they just don't take that kind of thing into consideration? i was really hoping it would hold some sway, but i guess not! does anyone know if med schools take this into account? i know some of my secondaries asked for related alumnae information. should i write to UC?
