Legacy

Legacy [leh·gah·see] n. Legacy Admissions or Legacy Applicants, the one true form of Affirmative Action at Stanford (and many other upper echelon universities), which gives an applicant extra extra credit for having relatives who have also attended the University. *note: image conscious big name educational institutions like to proclaim statistics like "20 members or 6 generations of this same family have all attended..." which sounds good in advertising and makes fundraising (within enclaves) a sure thing.
