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!

@dee, I agree. The rumor was only that she was accepted at Yale, not that she actually decided to go there. With her brains, I’d be shocked if she didn’t get into Yale as well. Wherever she goes, I wish her all the best!

o my gosh i wish that emma would attend school in the us!!!!! although it would be sort of strange for her because she would probably be attacked by fans every day 24 7 if they knew where she went to school…

Maybe she shouldn’t announce her decision. Wherever she decides to go, there will surely be paparazzi to follow. That will become quite tiresome for Emma and university officials to deal with. If that happens, she’ll have to keep a low profile to make them get bored and go away.

Ohhh, that would be really awesome if she went to Yale, its such a great school and has such a wonderful campus…. I would die happy if I could go there for an entire semester haha! I would most likely get in (I’ve never actually tried, though, but even the application fee is expensive!!) but even if I did get in, I could never afford it, though….

Emma is such an inspiration though :) It’s nice to have role models that we can actually look up to!

What was making Harry feel so horrified and unhappy was that he knew how it felt to be humiliated in the middle of a circle of onlookers, knew exactly how Snape had felt as his father had taunted him, and that judging from what he had just seen, his fathe
