Emma Watson Gets Accepted Into Yale?

Emma Watson Gets Accepted Into Yale?

Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson goes shopping on Bond Street with some gal pals in London on Friday (February 27).

The 18-year-old British actress, who has been filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was later seen speeding off in her eco-friendly Toyota Prius.

Emma reportedly blogged that she got accepted into Yale, the prestigious Ivy League school located in New Haven, Conn. No word on whether or not Emma will attend, defer or decline Yale.

UPDATE: Emma does not have a Twitter account and is deciding between attending university in the UK or US and “hasn’t accepted any placements at this time.”

Congratulations to her!

good for her, she’s a smart girl, she’s not just one of them young hollywood stars who think just b/c they made it big that education is not important or that it’s not necessary

# 3

They have enough “DISTURBANCE” already.
They simply can’t use another one, folks!!

I thought she was going to Trinity College, Cambridge. Jody Foster went to Yale and survived, I gather, so it is not that difficult. Still I’d hate to be a famous movie star in a college environment. Difficult to know genuine friends from suck ups, etc.

Good Lord. Do you live under a rock???

i know she’s a really smart girl and i applaud her for taking her schooling so seriously, however, lets be honest….if her name wasn’t emma watson, she would not be accepted into yale as a freshman. getting accepted into yale at 18 is like winning the lottery….i know tons of people with grades through the roof and tons of extra curricular activities and the most impressive of applications possible who can not get accepted there. it’s just very competitive….i like emma and all though so nothing against her, but i just dont think she would of been accepted if her name wasn’t attached to her application

of course she got accepted into yale university – she has all the money in the world behind her! it’s a real shame that she got accepted. who knows if she’s really that smart? i’m sure that if paris hilton, too, applied she would be accepted in a heartbeat.

that’s really a suprise given her celebrity status??? you think she got accepted because she’s smarter than anyone else?? she’s had everything handed to her on a silver platter since she started harry potter.

Thats Life Shannon. Thinks come easy when your a celebrity, the least of which being getting acceppted into Ivy League schools. To bad for the normal folks like us, who have to go above and beyond to compete.

she’s looking really good here. hope she stays out of trouble while in the US.

Exactly Jake. It must be nice….also…of course it goes w/o mentioning i think, but with affirmative action that also lowers the chances that she would be accepted into yale w/o her name. I disagree completely w/AA personally because I don’t believe it’s a fair system, but know that it’s a huge factor that plays into who can get accepted into colleges.

I’m not trying to question Emma’s intelligence, but I do agree with the other posters in that she got in solely based on who she is, and not on what she has done (in terms of academics and extra-curriculars). I know that’s life, and it’s been happening for years, but I can still be pissed off, right? In all fairness though, she could have gotten in based on academics, or whatever, but I hope she’s aware that being a celebrity would have very likely given her an unfair advantage.

Jealous much? I doubt anyone of these whining posters has grades that even come close to hers.She got accepted, no need to discredit her abilities. I think that’s being very unkind.

It makes me sad that wile me and other students bust our asses everyday, sacrifice so much time, that we might have a what? 2% to get into yale? I’ve had striaght A’s since end of elementry school, all the way til now… I will not get into Yale, likely.

At the end of the day, She got into Yale one way another..
so congratulations to her.
but Yale has lowered their standards by accepting HER.

And big surprise, these same posters will of course claim to be geniuses, all with 4.0 GPAs, and probably claim to have invented the cure for AIDS/cancer or served tirelessly for the peace corp…. yada yada yada.

Congratulations Emma! I’m so excited for you! I hope you do attend there. I wish I were as smart, gorgeous, and talented as you to be able to get into an Ivy League!!!

Just because she’s an actress doesn’t mean she isn’t brilliant academically.

she’s a smart girl, but I doubt she got accepted based only on her intelligence. She probably got in because she is Emma Watson. There are so many people out there who are smart, very high grades, and a pages of extra-curricular activities, and yet they still are not accepted

I don’t care how she got in but I wish her the best. At least she’s interested in going to college and that’s more that I can say for most of the young celebrities.

Why this girl ALWAYS has that expression of “i’m better than you”when she is on the street??my godness….i think that the rumors of her being a ***** on the set are true,she is the princess of her daddy anyway.I can’t wait for HBP and i love HP actors so much but she seems full of herself and her status is the main reason of this new.

It has been noted before that she lives up to her character as Hermione Granger in terms of academics. The only unfair advantage if you must find one is that she had a personal tutor during the filming of the movies. And the British education is not the same as that in America, you can’t just excel in your own school, your grades are based on the national standard. That means you are competing with everyone else in Britain.

These posters here are ridiculous. Emma Watson has been known for her intelligence since she was a child. She has been in nothing but private schools since she was a toddler. She has never been prone to Bs and Cs. She always has been a straight A student.

Her parents are very well educated. Both of her parents are lawyers.

In June 2006, Emma took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A and two A grades. She received A grades in her 2008 A level examinations in English Literature, Geography and Art, and in her 2007 AS (advanced subsidiary) level in History of Art.

Yale?!!??!! Well I hope for her best that she would decline it… Out of all the options she has, Brown University is definetly the best… I picked Yale over Brown and now I regret it

They don’t understand the British education system. They think that getting straight A’s in some of these high schools here is a huge achievement. I know a few Valedictorians here who went to college only to find they are just average compared to everyone else.
