University officials have not yet commented on the situation.“We do not comment publicly on the admissions status of individual applicants,” Harvard spokeswoman Rachael Dane said.
At least 10 hopeful would-be freshmen won’t be attending the Harvard this fall, after the university found that the students traded sexually explicit and racist images in a private chat room.
