Legacy at NYU?

My mom got her PsyD at NYU about 30 years ago. If I were to apply to NYU medical school, would her degree count as legacy for my med school application, or would it not be taken into consideration?

Thanks.

could possibly count more if she graduated from NYU med school, but most likely will have no effect. NYU has an extremely large alumni network-so probably not as unique as one’d think

with that said, would that stop you from applying? if adding it to your list isnt a huge financial cost, apply anyway and see what happens!

No, not even if she was a med school graduate.
