Skip to comments.Girl’s USC Rejection Letter Turns Out to Be Prom Proposal Tells Teen College Admission in Jeopardy
Posted on 04/14/2014 1:27:17 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A girl who was recently accepted at the University of South Carolina got a second shocking letter telling her that her she was instead rejected by the college.
The letter to Caitlyn Metzker that arrived with official-looking USC letterhead and envelope, said, "Unfortunately, it is clear that your grades are not what they were when we accepted you."
The story of the letter was spotlighted Friday by Carson Daly during Whats Trending on the Today show.
The letter goes on, in very convincing, official-sounding language to tell Metzker that there is concern about her senior year performance.
The letter concludes by saying, It saddens us to say that your admission is in jeopardy, and we may have to pull our admission from you due to your poor school ethic and attendance. However if you were to just agree to go to prom with your boyfriend we could reconsider letting you continue to be a South Carolina Gamecock. So what do you say, will you go to prom with me?
Metzker responded in a tweet that said, Oh my god Dylan. Thank you for the heart attack.
The creative prom proposal went viral, and was retweeted more than 6,300 and favorited more than 13,000 times by Friday morning.
Many of the responses included sentiments like I would have killed him, but most cheered on the creative approach to a prom invitation.
Theres no official word yet, but the guess is that Metzker said, Yes.
He might have briefly given her a heart attack, but he sounds like he might be a fun person to be around.
What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
my wife would have killed me.
Hang on to this guy, Caitlyn.
If he’s this good a forger, just imagine how valuable he could be to you at report card time.
that is creative? perhaps i might consider it creative if he weren’t her boyfriend...
Now that is creative. Too bad our candidates have to go into the gutter for a laugh. This is what adults should gear their message towards and not repulsive discussions.
This is creative, but not sure how it analogizes with the “electile dysfunction” political ad.
For you to think that other ad is in “the gutter” and “repulsive” is disturbing to me. Okay, maybe it pushes the envelope or is even a tad tacky - but repulsive? I mean, sorry to be the harbinger of bad news, but to get to vulgar or repulsive, one has to have mental pictures of the impact of certain products on male bodies. I’m sorry .that’s the only way to get to your level of angst .
Well maybe I wish this new conservative would use more creativity than second grade tactics on a last name. That really is the bottom line. It is at best immature. Repulsive might be harsh. Acting like a little kid might be more accurate.
I’ll be the cynic and suggest relationship red flag.
This joker intentionally brought her down to an extreme emotional low in order to “lift her up” with a prom invitation.
Yeah, sounds like a real prize.
And I wish you had a sense of humor. Or, short of that, I wish you had a sense of how humor plays into a campaign. Or at the very least, perhaps even understood something about a long shot campaign and how it differs from other campaigns.
But alas, in your little government funded cloister ...
I hope he gets boils....
Good boy. Creative.
“Caitlyn” is on my top ten least liked female names.
“Dylan” is on my top ten least liked male names.
6,300 re-tweets and 13,000 favorites is "going viral?"
Boy, standards for everything are dropping these days. Used to be "going viral" was 1,000,000+ hits.
She either dumps him or winds up marrying him.
She needs to wait a few years and then pull a similar prank on him.
“What doesn’t kill you,makes you stronger.”
If I were the girl’s Dad,Dylan would be at serious risk of getting a good tune-up.
Better to find out early on, whether she’s a keeper or not.
