The schools reportedly created a dual admission program in which Sara would be allowed to attend Stanford for her freshman and sophomore years and then Harvard in her junior and senior years. She would then get to decide which university she would accept her diploma.
 
Chosun.com which originally reported the story is now reporting denials from both universities. The first article including letters from both colleges making the offer. Both universities deny sending it. The father who supplied the letters to Chosum says the offer is so unique, most people at the school’s aren’t aware of it and still maintains the offer is real.
