Right off the top of my head, I'm thinking:
- Donation to the endowment fund.
- Legacy admits.
- Connected to an affluent member of society/alumni.
- Celebrity profile.
PS - I didn't list URM because the bigots of TLS will go nuts with the hatin'. Also, please don't suggest anything inappropriate or criminal in nature (ie. forged transcripts, cheating on the LSAT, etc).
Wouldn't celebrity profile be a soft?
