Should Legacy Admissions Be Eliminated?

Legacy admissions are typically defined as the preferences given by colleges to applicants who have a relationship to alumni of the institution. They can also include preferences extended to the children of individuals who made significant donations to the college or its programs. After the Supreme Court decision banning affirmative action was announced on June 29th, I heard and read commentary that legacy admissions should be banned if affirmative action was banned.
