Family tradition
Being a legacy does help in application process
Applications to the university still request alumni information from prospective students despite criticism of the practice.

TCU will continue to ask for family information about prospective students in the admissions process, even though some state schools have decided against it because some people say legacy inquiries are unfair.

Texas A&M University, one of the first public universities in the state to stop requesting legacy information, came under attack by the state legislature and minority-rights activists. They claim the practice is unfair to minority applicants and first generation college students.
