Even though her four-minute music video plea for admission racked up 27,000 views on YouTube, Philadelphia-area high school senior Jackie Milestone will not be coming to New Haven in the fall.

In a response to a comment from mosiemo13 asking whether she’d been admitted, Milestone wrote on Friday via her YouTube account that she “didn’t get in.” “I gave it my best shot, though, so I feel good at least knowing that,” she added.

In response to another comment, Milestone wrote that she has “several great options” for college next year and will “spend some time” before deciding where to enroll.

You gave it a great effort, Jackie. Cross Campus wishes you the very best of luck.
