First came the prayer, then came the answer.
A video of a Louisiana high school student finding out she was accepted into Wellesley College in Massachusetts is making its rounds online.
In the video, Jada Wiltz, a student at TM Landry College Preparatory in Breaux Bridge, is sitting in front of a laptop surrounded by her family as her father leads a prayer. The room goes quiet while Wiltz checks her admissions status, and then erupts into cheers when they learn she has been accepted into the women’s liberal arts college.
“Wellesley is ranked #3 in liberal arts colleges! One of the top ranked girls colleges! GO BLUE,” Wiltz wrote in a tweet accompanying the video.
Wellesley College, which counts Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright and Diane Sawyer among its notable alumnae, responded to her tweet.
“Congratulations and welcome,” the college tweeted.
