Every year, sometime in mid-April, nearly 3,000 students log on with nervous excitement and sign off in shock and horror.

These groups are, for the first few months, home to excruciating showmanship, awkward smalltalk, and strange requests. For posterity and humor’s sake, Accepted! 2017 has collected some of the funniest and most cringe-worthy posts from admitted students groups across the country. Check out the submissions culled from Brown’s Class of 2017 group. Some of these might look familiar…
