Pizza Essay Gets Student Accepted To Ivy league

Do you want to get into one of the best colleges in the world? Then you might have to think outside the (Pizza) box. Admissions for the ivy league is challenging with the acceptance rate usually below 10%. But one teen used an unusual pitch in an essay to get offered a place at Yale where the acceptance rate is only 6.3%. Wait until you hear what she wrote about in her application essay: Pizza!

In response to a prompt about what you love to do, was about Papa John’s. “I love to order pizza from Papa John’s so much,” Williams tells ABC News. “That was my first thought when I saw that prompt.” Her essay, which discussed how ordering from the pizza chain made her feel independent as a kid, was a bit of a risk, she admits, but it made an  impression on Yale’s admissions team. 

We know what your thinking this is a joke? But it’s a true story. Unbelievable!
