    As I understand it, "legacy holder in wife" means kid's mom went to that college, which makes kid a legacy. Its like passing a fancy title down to an entitled brat, but from mom instead of dad.
    Trump is what Americans crave. He's got electrolytes!

    I can see legacy status carrying some weight for admissions when choosing between two equally qualified candidates. Harvard I'm sure gets thousands of applications from 4.0+ students who are also 3 sport athletes with a slew of extracurriculars and a history of volunteerism, so a determination has to be made somewhere.

    In terms of actually displacing a qualified and unconnected applicant for a less qualified legacy one? No, forget that nonsense.

    Legacies don't bother so much if done right. If I brought prestige to the school, helped out the school, then my kids should be benefit. All that other stuff is nonsense.
