High school senior Molly McGaan has a rejection letter from Harvard University, which is sorry to inform her that the Ivy League school is unable to offer her a spot in the Class of 2019 — despite her high level of “$USwagg moneyyyy.”
McGaan — a senior at the Francis W. Parker School in Chicago — created the now-viral fake Harvard rejection letter for her school’s satirical magazine, Citizen Poke. She tells The Boston Globe, though, that she really did apply to Harvard and is still waiting to hear back.
The letter includes some good advice from Harvard. “For future reference, it is not wise to start an essay with the words, ‘listen here u little slanks’ and end with ‘McGaan out *drops mic*.'” There are more gems like that in the fake rejection note.
McGaan told The Globe that she’s surprised that so many people think the letter is authentic. It’s gotten over 6,000 likes on the Citizen Poke Facebook page and has been passed around extensively on Reddit and Imgur.
