Eg. If my brother is a sophomore at Stanford, does it increase my chances of getting into Stanford?

I have heard that it does help if you have a sibling enrolled at the school.

I want to attend a school that my brother is attending. My stats are not as good as his but I am hoping that because he is there it will help.
Also, I will be applying ED and I will not be asking for financial aid. I will also write a letter showing how familiar I am with the school already because of my brother. Tufts is the school.

Is it only parents that help you get enrolled or are sisters and brothers considered legacies at Tufts?

Exactly David! Same here- my brother had a 1500 [760V, 740M], I got a 1420 first shot [will take it again]...
All my other grades are a shade below his. My EC record is better though.
PLus, he's doing very well at Stanford [GPA 4+]. Maybe, they'll consider that!

Do you think that not asking for financial aid really helps you get in?
|By Smac86 (Smac86) on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 - 02:42 pm: Edit|
Yeah- Colleges are looking for full-payers.... [I guess]... Unless, you're absolutely brilliant!

What're the best books to study from? [I used Barron's for the Jan 2003 test....]
|By David on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 - 04:14 pm: Edit|
So do you think it helps if my brother is enrolled at Tufts? Will it help me get in?
|By lol on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 - 07:22 pm: Edit|
I think it will. At my school there was a girl with nothing- grades/ scores/ no ec's but got into stanford since her brother and father went there.

Better chances with a dad going to a school than a sibling, I guess...

I heard that if you have a sibling enrolled in the school you are applying to, you are almost guaranteed admission if you have equal or better stats then he or she.

What if your stats are not as good as the enrolled sib? Will they still take you if you"re going to pay full tuition and are born on puerto
|By leeza on Thursday, February 13, 2003 - 01:41 pm: Edit|
If you're from Puerto Rico doesn't that make you a urm and help you get in? And if you're paying full tuition I would say you're in. And hey, if your brother is there..what more would they want?
|By specy on Thursday, February 13, 2003 - 09:17 pm: Edit|
I would say that Puerto Rican will get you in.
That's a urm almost as good as being black.
|By Sabby on Friday, February 14, 2003 - 10:16 am: Edit|
If you're from PR you are an urm. Definitely!!
|By sweetie on Saturday, February 15, 2003 - 04:28 pm: Edit|
Puerto Ricans get in really easily. You will have no problem
|By sid mathur on Monday, February 17, 2003 - 09:13 am: Edit|
legacies are only parents and grandparents, not siblings.
|By babe on Monday, February 17, 2003 - 04:27 pm: Edit|
sibs can definitely help you get in. Especially if you are not asking for financial aid.
