Hey everyone,

My family has been estranged from my father since my high school years.

However, the interesting part of this story is that I am now applying to medical school, including the one that he graduated from.

Does anybody have any clue to how my status as an applicant at that school would be affected?
Would I be considered a legacy applicant? Would I perhaps be automatically rejected?

I was wondering if people had any thoughts or had further insight into how schools consider this kind of situation in the admissions process.
Unless he's a major donor, this won't have any bearing on your app.
