High school student's essay on her love of pizza gets her admitted to Yale!

 One teen turned her loves of pizza into an admission to Yale University. Carolina Williams, a recent graduate of Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tennessee, 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. 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. Despite her acceptable 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 scholarships opportunities. Still, Papa John's was thrilled with Williams' news and even sent her congratulatory tweet.
