Teen's Essay About Pizza Gets Her Into Yale

Carolina Williams, a recent graduate of Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tenn., was accepted to Yale University in March with an admissions officer noting her standout answer to a short essay prompt to write about something she loves to do: order pizza from Papa John’s.

According to The Tennesseean, Williams says her answer was the first thing that came to mind — but it probably didn’t hurt that she also ranked in the top 10 of her graduating class and participated in several extracurricular activities including English Honors Society, National Honors Society, Model UN and Youth in Government.

Despite her acceptance to the Ivy League institution, the pizza-loving scholar has actually decided to attend Auburn University in Alabama to pursue business, noting that the college seemed like a better fit and she had better scholarship opportunities.

Williams, even made a twitter to share her accomplishments!
