First Generation answer on application PDF

When viewing the PDF of an application, there's an automatically-generated Household Information item for a "First Generation" student (defined as neither parent having a four-year degree or higher). The answer is null if no parents are specified.


Because of the way this is calculated, it's possible to actually be a first generation student but not to be counted as one, because the only way to have "Is First Generation" answered as Yes is by specifying an education level in your profile for both parents, showing that neither completed a four year degree.
