December 12th was a lucky day for high school senior, Brendon Gauthier.

Surrounded by family and friends, the college hopeful opened up his laptop to check his admission status to Cornell University.

The private Ivy league university is notoriously hard to get into, boasting a 14% acceptance rate. But those statistics  didn’t deter Gauthier from listing Cornell as his first choice, according to The Cornell Daily Sun.
