Students Can Use Snapchat to See If They've Been Accepted to This College
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will send snaps to admitted students.
It may be time to say goodbye to getting college letters in the mail -- or even those sluggish online portals that require you to hit refresh several times before you get the answer.
In a first, high school seniors who applied to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will receive acceptances via Snapchat.
The prospective students will then either screenshot the message -- some people frame their letters, so why not -- or send a selfie back to the admissions team to let them know they received it.
Of course, the admitted students will still receive the requisite giant packet and an email, but if they are one of Snapchat's more than 150 million daily active users, it's likely that the app is the first place they will see the good news.
