Harvard and the Senior Prom

Harvard Admission, Getting Into Harvard, Harvard College Admissions
One senior chose to take her Harvard acceptance as her date to senior prom.

Woodward and Bernstein may not be working at “HelloGiggles,” “a positive online community for women covering news, culture, entertainment, beauty, fashion, and more,” but the online community is breaking news on the date a high school senior chose for prom. Hint, hint. It’s not a person. When Priscilla Samey apparently couldn’t find a date for prom, she chose to take her college acceptance letter instead. And it wasn’t just any ordinary college acceptance letter. It was from Harvard.

As “HelloGiggles” reports, “Now our attention has turned to 17-year-old Priscilla Samey, who had the best response after failing to get a date for prom. After not being asked to the dance, Samey took matters into her own hands, and did something amazing: She took her Harvard acceptance letter with her as her date instead. ICONIC…Samey explained that she got the idea from her sister. ’She said, ’The best one [date] is all your college admissions,’’ the 17-year-old said. ’I was like, ’I’m just going to stick to my roots!’ After sending out her tweet, Samey was flooded with comments on social media, praising her decision.”

“Couldn’t find a man to accept me for prom so I took a college that did #Harvard2021 #prom2k17 ???” — Priscilla Samey on Twitter

Ivy Coach salutes Priscilla Samey for choosing to go to her senior prom with something she is so very proud of — her admission to Harvard. Who needs a date anyway.
