Woman Excited To Start College In Florida Realizes She Applied To Miami University In Ohio
An International Student from Vietnam was excited to attend college at Miami University in Florida. All that time in hot Florida sun, spending time at the beach, checking out all the hot attractive people. Then she gets her acceptance letter from Miami University…in OHIO!
According to this report, Valerie Do is a 19-year-old woman from Vietnam who was thrilled to learn she’d been accepted by a college in Miami. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize she’d applied to Miami University in Ohio…and not the one she was expecting in Florida.
She’d been called out by some for not doing enough research into the school before applying to it, but she now says it all “worked out for the best” even though the beaches were replaced by cornfields.
Fans of The Office may remember the joke where Ryan moves to Miami (Ohio) calling it the “Silicon Prairie.” Naturally, Kelly, who adores Ryan and would follow him to the end of the earth, follows him to Miami. She boasts and brags about how she’s going to Miami to hang out with LeBron James and Gloria Estefan. She even gives all her winter coats away because she’ll no longer be needing them. Or, so she thinks. Turns out, art does indeed imitate life. It doesn’t only happen on TV, it can happen to you, too! Have to imagine this happens frequently for those at Miami University in Ohio.
Mistakenly Enrolls at Miami University In Ohio
To be honest, it’s happened to my friends. In college, some friends made plans to go to Windsor, Ontario for New Years Eve. It was a great plan, being 19 years old at the time meant it was illegal to drink in the states but legal to drink in Windsor, Ontario. The perfect plan!
However, upon arrival to the hotel, they were told they didn’t have a reservation at the hotel. How could this be? They showed the individual at the front desk our confirmation e-mail and they noticed something my friends did not. They pointed out that their reservations were actually at a hotel in Windsor, Wisconsin. That’s nowhere close to where they were. It was humiliating, but thankfully they were able to book a room in the correct town eventually. Goes to show a little mistake like this can happen to anyone! They booked a hotel in Windsor, Ontario and she enrolled at the Miami University in Ohio.
