How can a prospective student make the most of his/her legacy?

Live up to it with superior grades, and be a model student. Don't go around the campus bragging about it.

How can a prospective student make the most of his/her legacy?

Maintain a relationship with the school over time and apply early. If you do not apply early your legacy advantage basically goes away. The reason schools like legacies is because they are likely to attend and do well since they know about the school and want to be there.
