Minnesota Teen Takes Harvard Acceptance Letter As Senior Prom Date
A Minnesota teenager took her acceptance letter from Harvard University to her senior prom when she did not have a date.
Seventeen-year-old Priscilla Samey attended her senior prom with her Harvard acceptance letter, after getting the idea from her sister.
“She said, ‘The best one [date] is all your college admissions,'” Samey said in an interview with Mic. By taking the acceptance letter instead of someone, Samey not only made light of the situation but saved some money in the process.
“I took a date that was pretty low maintenance, so I didn’t have to pay for his dinner,” Samey said.
Samey also received acceptance letters Yale, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Columbia, and Brown, but received a full ride from Harvard. There, she will be majoring in political science with a pre-law track at Harvard and plans to get both her juris doctorate and a degree in business administration so she can go into business law.
In related news, a group of Ohio quadruplets has chosen to attend Yale together.
Nigel, Zachary, Aaron, and Nick Wade were all accepted to both Yale and Harvard, but they ultimately chose to attend the former together, after their mother Kim Wade encouraged them to stay together.
“It was a big deal for me that they stay together. We discussed it and the logistics of travel, and the support they will all have for each other…we decided as a family it is the best place for all of them,” Kim said. “I feel really good about it. Yale has done a wonderful job of welcoming us. It’s the best place and they have such a sense of family.”
