If you want your kid to go to an exclusive college, don’t waste your time with Harvard, Yale or Stanford.  Those are SAFETY SCHOOLS compared to the college we’re talking about today.

And that school is . . . McDonald’s Hamburger University in China.

McDonald’s opened up the Hamburger U outside of Shanghai, and SO many people want in that they’re only accepting the best EIGHT out of every 1,000 applicants.

That’s an acceptance rate under one percent.  In comparison, Harvard accepts about 7% of applicants . . . or about 875% more applicants than Hamburger U in Shanghai.  (–Yale accepts 7.5%, Stanford is 7.6%.)

Students who get accepted to the McDonald’s college in China learn how to manage a McDonald’s restaurant.  There are currently 1,300 McDonald’s locations in China, and 1,000 more will be opening over the next four years.

The fight for spots at Hamburger University in China is intense because unemployment is even worse over there than it is over here.  More than 26% of China’s college graduates are unemployed.

When you graduate from Hamburger University, you’re almost guaranteed a job right away. 


(–Interesting fact:  While Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are the most selective schools in the U.S., the school that’s the least selective is . . . West Virginia State University.  They have an acceptance rate of 100%.)
