Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posts video of Harvard acceptance in 2002

To accomplish this he hacked into Harvard's database and took names and photos of all the students. But before all this panned out, an ecstatic teenager was way too happy to get into the Ivy League college.

Now, with a reaction that lukewarm, anyone would assume that it was sarcastic and as did Mark's father, Edward Zuckerberg. The video has now gone viral with 3.5 million views in less than 15 hours since it was uploaded.

In honor of the occasion, Zuckerberg posted an a-dorkable throwback Thursday home video today, showing the moment he nervously logged on to his PC and found out he was accepted to Harvard's class of 2006. "Next week I'm going back for commencement to get my degree", the 33-year-old Zuckerberg wrote in his post.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg delivers the keynote address at Facebook's F8 Developer Conference on April 18, 2017 at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. In one of the comments to a follower, he also said that his mother had predicted that he will drop out of college even before he began his graduation. At the time, "my mom bet me I'd drop out and my younger sister bet me she'd finish college before me".

In a deadpan voice, he then says, "Yay, I got accepted". "Now I suppose the cycle is complete", stated Zuckerberg.
