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!

ACT vs SAT

Getting into a top US university requires good test scores. Let’s review the two major tests options available: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Testing (ACT).

Scoring well on one of these tests means you don’t need to sit the other, a top ACT score is equivalent to a top SAT score, so which test should you choose?

  • One important difference is duration, SAT (3 hours) vs ACT (2 hours 55 minutes).
  • The ACT allows the use of a calculator for the math questions, SAT does not!
  • If you don’t like science then consider the SAT it doesn’t have a science section, ACT does!
  • Both tests have optional essays (with additional time)

Here’s the  SAT and ACT test scores for Yale :

Test score ranges (25th to 75th percentiles) for enrolled freshmen :

  • SAT-Verbal: 720-800
  • SAT-Math: 710-800
  • SAT-Writing: 710-790
  • ACT: 31-35  (source: YALE) 

Before making your decision on which test to use for your college application, consider using an online testing service that offers practice tests, Magoosh offers a range of tests at affordable prices. Goodluck!

Warning: this article contains stereotypes of university students which may be offensive to people who can’t make fun of their own educational privilege.

1) Legacy

Family name and wealth beyond the reach of most people. Trust fund millionaires.

Ivy League Alumni

2) Geek 

The Geek is usually a high achiever that has grown up being the smartest kid in the room. The Harvard average HS GPA is 4.17.
