A high school student from Fuzhou, Fujian province was accepted to a university in New York thanks in part to an admission essay he’d written about his love of instant noodles, the novelty of which item is expected to wear off within approximately three months of his enrollment.
Wang, a senior at Fuzhou No. 1 Middle School, said he was admitted to the University of Rochester after he’d detailed his love for the packaged snack in his application to the school, according to ECNS.cn.
Wang posted his admission letter on Weibo that read: “The counselors recommended that you be admitted in part after reading about your enthusiasm for ramen noodles. The committee and I are confident you will both stand out and grow stronger as part of the Rochester family.”
Wang said his love of that iconic wavy noodle block soaked in solvents of unidentifiable powders spawned from a Singapore brand he’d tasted as a child.
“I tried the noodles during my trip to the country, and my world changed the moment I ate it,” he said.
University of Rochester is ranked 50th in private colleges by Forbes and 60th in top US colleges overall. Frankly we’ve got nothing to say about this until we get our hands on that goddamn noodle essay.
