Does the college you apply to care about if your parents have gone to college or not, if so, which colleges they attended?

I think the schools do not necessaily care about if your parents have gone to college or have a college degree. I know some applications do ask that question, but i think at the end of the day, those are just used for statistical purposes.

Colleges and universities now probably do not care about whether your parents have gone to college or not. If they ask for that information, they are probably just collecting info for study purposes. On the other hand, some scholarships or sponsor may award students who are the first in the family to head to college, so if you fall into that group, you may want to search around and look for those scholarships.
