Let’s be honest: we can’t all shoot our acceptance letters into space – what would our moms hang on the fridge? StudentAdvisor found 10 students who won’t be letting go of their admission letters anytime soon. These students made some funny and touching YouTube videos to share their joy of their college acceptance with the world.


10. “Acceptance Letter to College” –  Central Michigan

Why did this mom put her daughter’s acceptance letter in the hands of a creepy mannequin? We’re not sure, but we can only assume that she wanted it to stand out from the rest of the mail. The new Central Michigan student seems quite pleased, but mostly shocked by the way her message was delivered.

We’re so excited for Fisher! He received his MIT admissions letter! Fisher’s family’s excitement is coupled with his incredibly emotional reaction – shedding tears of happiness. We’re sure that MIT is as happy to have Fisher has he is to be joining them.

1. Caitlin’s Acceptance Reaction to UCLA – Fall 2011

The best produced video of our list, Caitlin’s parents made this video to capture her reaction to her UCLA acceptance, telling her grandmother, calling her friends and updating her Facebook status. The video is very emotional – in part from Caitlin’s tears of joy, as well as the somber soundtrack!
