Are they really that important?

I want to get into ivy league, but I'm a little worried. My dad went to Tufts, my mom only got a foreign diploma.

no they aren't. The important thing is that u do what u enjoy doing. Just remember that admission is probably the easiest thing in college as opposed to staying there and being able to handle the work.

So ya, Go KK19131!!!

If you're a good candidate with a legacy at tufts, I'd say you're in most of the time.

but if you are a first generation....you are a great candidate. After looking at some of the stats on this website, i am still amazed that i got into some competitive colleges, but i now realize that it was because i was a first generation student, socioeconomically disadvantaged, and i had killer recs and essays.

Notre Dame is notorious for its high number of legacies.
