PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It was a college event with a twist at a private high school in Logan Friday.

Instant College Acceptance Day gave dozens of Cristo Rey High School students the chance to meet with college admission officers and find out immediately if they were in or not.

Faith Whitt was meeting with officials from Immaculata University and La Salle University to explain why she would fit in on campus.

"All the different students in the grades they know me and I feel like on those campuses that people are going to know me because I stand out from the crowd."

Katera Smalls was ecstatic — she's going to college.

"I got accepted into Rosemont $3,000 scholarship. I got $12,500 from Cabrini a year."

(Reporter:) "What are you going to do?"

"I don't know."

It's nice to have choices.
