Watch Surprise Reactions to College Acceptance Letters!

December 16, 2015

While some students are putting the final touches to their college applications, a few are hoping to get an early Christmas gift in the shape of an admissions acceptance letter. Luckily for us, the reaction videos have been flooding in on YouTube, packed with tense countdowns, nerve wrenching last minute worries, and bursts of joyous cries. These lucky few get to enjoy the rest of their Christmas knowing they will be at their dream school in the Fall. We wish everyone the same luck with regular decision results, but for now sit back and enjoy the best early decision acceptance videos for the class of 2020!!

1. The Countdown… (The Wharton School of Pennsylvania)

2. “Oh ****!” (Johns Hopkins University)

3. Just Tears (Harvard University)

4. Mom, stop embarrassing me! (Stanford University)
