Priscilla is an extraordinary student and was accepted to a spate of Ivy League schools including Yale, Princeton, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell — and Harvard. (Also, PHEW).

But! She didn't have a date to her senior prom. "At first I was disappointed but going by myself allowed me to avoid all the competitiveness and expenses that usually go with prom," she told BuzzFeed.

She had her Twitter followers practically weeping.

@prizxillas The ones who ain't accept you to prom probably ain't even get accepted to college.

@prizxillas You absolutely deserve so much better than these boys who don't know what they're missin', you stay sla… https://t.co/Vpg84oH5Gw

And in case you're wondering, nope, the acceptance letter didn't actually make it into the dance with Priscilla. "He stayed in the car most of the time," she told BuzzFeed. "He's shy and also I didn't want it to get trampled."

As for her advice to others who are looking to get into every damn Ivy League school? "My secret for admissions to top schools is definitely be yourself."

"Of course I wanted to get in, but when I wrote my application it was more about making sure admissions saw who I was instead of who I was pretending to be. Because at the end of the day you're still the one spending the next four years there."
