Wow...this is genius. In an attempt to stand out from thousands of other students on the U-M waitlist, Lawrence Yong created his own version of a classic Jackson 5 song to show just how much he wanted to be a Wolverine.
"'In all honesty I only expected it to get maybe 100 or 200 views. Maybe from a couple of my school friends and then some people at church,' says Yong."
It not only went viral, but eventually made its way through the U-M admissions office, and apparently satisfied their requirement for a "demonstrated interest". Yeah, I'd say so. Really, though, how could you say no to this guy? Accepted: Unusual methods by wait-listed University of Michigan student bring success
