Yesterday, we told you of the numerous media outlets carrying a story which claimed actress Emma Watson supposedly announced via Twitter that she had been accepted into Yale. Thanks to, we now know these claims were indeed quite false. As posted on her official website, Emma Watson does NOT have a Twitter account, and the Hermione Granger actress is "still trying to decide whether she wants to attend University in the UK or the USA, and hasn't accepted any placements at this time."

Thanks so much to EmmaWatsonOfficial!

The University’s in the UK or the USA are all good so she has a lot to think about.

Why can’t the media just wait until Emma announces it herself on the website?

Good, now that’s all clear… I wonder where she’ll go …

She should probably stay in Britian. Young celebrities in America tend to go astray with all of the ridiculus media and drama. I live in America, but it seems like English celebrities are much more grounded and less egocentric. :p

You know, none of this confusion would even happen if you didn’t have stupid people on the internet, pretending to be famous actors/actresses and such.

Anyway, I hope Emma is happy with whatever university she ends up going to. :)

Good luck to her as she deliberates her final decision, and I wish her the best of luck in whatever she does for her higher education!

Well, at least they were quick to jump on this rumor. I hate it when rumors grow legs and just start running all over the internet!

i think that its none of our business no matter how good of a fan that you are to know what school she goes to or to try and sway her to go to your school.
she’ll go where ever she wants.

Wasn’t the rumor that she got in to Yale? Not that she decided to go there? She didn’t deny that, and I bet she did get in! :)

Hmm. I heard a while ago that she was considering a small liberal arts school near where I go to school and got excited. Oh the rumors.

Harry watched the girl and her mother disappear as the train rounded the corner. Houses flashed past the window. Harry felt a great leap of excitement. He didn't know what he was going to but it had to be better than what he was leaving behind.
