Obviously this is fake, anyone with memes this dank would get a full ride.

This Harvard rejection letter has been bouncing around the Internet today, first on reddit and then on BuzzFeed a few hours later. I'll let you take a moment to read this letter first, because it is swagtastically hilarious and, for lack of a better word, fire.

What's even funnier, though, is how many people took this at face value. It's unknown whether BuzzFeed knew whether or not this was real when they posted it, but it is known that there is almost no circumstance in which they would care. For good reason: it's irrelevant to how funny it is. They did, however, crop out the top of the picture. This indicates they wanted people to believe it for as long as possible (which, again, is just good business), because the top contained the logo of a high school humor magazine.

But as a former humor magazine writer myself (in college—I didn't even know high schools could have them), I wanted to make sure that recognition reached the true author of the letter, Molly McGaan, who writes the Citizen Poke humor paper at the Francis W. Parker school in Chicago, IL. Hopefully, this awesome work wasn't inspired by too many college rejection letters on her part, but even if she didn't get into any schools (I'm sure she did), I hear there's a pretty good comedy scene in Chicago (and some humor publication called The Onion or something).

One final note: even though it says "Ms. McGaan" right on the paper, a really large number of commenters assumed this letter was addressed to/written by a dude. Just a reminder that $wagg moneyyyy knows no gender, people.
