High school student rejected from Harvard after an alleged Facebook status demeaning the school. A high school student name Jacob, posted the following on his Facebook account:
“I just got my admittance letters into Yale, Duke, Northwestern, Penn, and Columbia. Now Harvard is begging my a– to go to their school. FULLY PAID SCHOLARSHIP. LOL. Hmmmm…. Ahahahaha naw kiss my a–. F— Harvard! I don’t need no harvard or no scholarship HAHA! No really though, I’m going to harvard guys. Wooooooo! =D”
Apparently Jacob might have initially been accepted into Harvard but went to far by pretending he did not get in and then posting it on Facebook.
The news became a hot trend via google and trendytwit. Many of the stories written about the status were indicating that it was a hoaxed gone too far. Questions that have yet to be answered regarding the situation that caused the trend to spread like fire on various websites except Twitter.
On Twitter there were over two dozens tweets saying the same thing about the Facebook status and but none of the tweets reacting to the news.
Jacob the high school student rejected from Harvard, allegedly posted the demeaning status was actually warned by a friend not to post the comment. The websites Infoclickz and gather posted an article ousting the Jacob, images blurred of him, however his last name and location was not released.
Either way if the status was a hoaxed, you would think he would clear his name. It makes you wonder what was he thinking? Many colleges, organizations and jobs check Facebook accounts to find out who they are hiring, accepting into their schools and letting into their organizations.
Harvard has yet to confirm the story and Jacob has not spoken out on the Facebook status.
