Harvard Prefrosh Rejected Over Facebook Status… Maybe

The Interwebs (and an annoying Facebook group) are in uproar over an apparent case of college admissions cyber-seppuku. Apparently, a lucky but highly unintelligent high-schooler posted his college successes all over Facebook with a derogative but joking anti-Harvard message. A friend proceeded to leave some unintended dramatic irony on his wall before, allegedly, Harvard got in contact to rescind the offer of admission. Here’s the image:

The “fully paid scholarship” part — for this idiotic-sounding, smiley-using kid — sounds sketchy, leading us to suspect that the whole thing is a less-than-elaborate hoax. And would he really have gotten all of his admissions letters at the same time? Even more suspicious: who would choose anti-fun Harvard over Yale, Duke, Penn or Columbia? (We kid the Cantabs, we kid.)

    Wow, gee, I wonder if this is a hoax. Utter bullshit nonstory, complete with a link to a blogspam site. Nice work, intrepid journalist.

    wut up new ivygate?! just lettin’ you boys know, your readers would rather have a sparsely updated blog with legitimate items to report or comment on than a blog that cranks a load of bulls**t out a few times a week just to say they posted something. instead of “oh, nothing today”, I’m saying “why is this s**t bookmarked”. just lettin’ you know.

    I’m sorry but this is kinda retarded and not very news-worthy. Maybe you guys should have a sidebar for news-snippets that are odd and quirky but not too important, and then leave the main blog for actual news.
