One college-bound grad recently discovered she got into the Ivy League Yale University thanks to her unique essay -- about Papa John's Pizza. Carolina Williams wowed her admissions officer by sharing all the feelings the process of ordering a pie can deliver.

"It smells like celebration, as I love to rejoice a happy occasion by calling Papa John's for my favorite food," Williams wrote in response to the challenge "Write about something that you love to do."

She added that ordering pizza brings about feelings of "independence, consolation, and joy." The essay and Yale University acceptance letter are showcased on Williams's Twitter.


Despite getting into Connecticut-based Yale, however, Williams has decided to stay close to her Tennessee roots and attend  Alabama's Auburn University, where she told the Mirror Online, "I love the south and the school spirit."

Williams also shared with the outlet, "I definitely hope to be an author. I've loved writing since I was little."
