She got her outcome already. Waitlisted, that's from last week and she's trying her heart out to get the acceptance. I mean, if anything, they ought to give it to her for being willing to embarrass herself so publicly in the name of allegiance to something she isn't even part of yet.

Funny, I think the opposite - publicly ingratiating herself like this will only kill her chances, not only at Harvard but at any other school at which she hasn't already been accepted. Plus, imagine if she ends up somewhere else, everyone will know she was willing to go all the way for Harvard but still didn't make it.

Is their some sort of Ivy fetish in high school now? She is humiliating herself in public, for a slim chance at attending a college that will provide a remarkably similar experience to the other colleges she is probably applying to. She probably doesn't even need Harvard for recruiting, and will just end up studying English (hopefully not music).

I really want to go to Stanford GSB...but I still wouldn't do anything like that. Why would an admissions officer be impressed by a complete lack of self respect? Would you want a student who would get down on their knees for a chance at a better final club, or a better job? Try pulling something like this with an employer.

That's true too, I hadn't considered the flipside.

West coast, people have. That girl with her slideshow for Citi IBD? Alexsey Vayner? jeffrey chiang?

Yea, but I think most people have know better after what happened to those people. I mean, I think the Citi IBD thing was more cultural ignorance than general stupidity. I am under the impression that, in China, personal "pitch books" are a common part of the application process. And I think most people have learned not to follow the example of Chiang/Vanyner.

Are colleges able to revoke admissions for things like this? I wouldn't want a student who doesn't want to be at my school. I am guessing she told every other school that they were her top choice too.

I mean, I feel like 98%+ of people didn't end up at the school they wanted wholeheartedly. Anyone not at HYPW is probably deep down jilted, even if just a tiny bit.
