how much is college first generation considered in admission

Postby futurehero » Sat May 07, 2011 11:55 pm

Hi

I am a college first generation and kinda low income too. I am a low income in US standard but my family does not
live in the states, and we are not classified as low income in that country.
But I am asian so I am not ethnically underrepresented. How much is my status considered as underrepresented?
do i get any boost?

You won't get a noticeable boost. Worry about the LSAT mainly.

I know on one of the applications I applied it specifically asked if you were the first generation in your family to pursue a post-graduate degree. Probably more for scholarship consideration than getting in, though I wouldn't be shocked if it boosted you a bit.

boost will probably be negligible.
