The First Thing You See When You’re Accepted to an Ivy League School
Yesterday evening, thousands of Ivy League college applicants found out whether or not they were accepted into the class of 2021. Per Business Insider, the majority of schools like Cornell and Harvard University have acceptance rates that dip below 10 percent.
In the digital age, the acceptance “letter”—i.e. that piece of paper typed on the schools’ official letterhead—has in most cases been replaced by email blasts, acceptance videos, and other e-formats. Here are a few examples of what some of these students saw yesterday.
