The perils of social media and university admissions … After a failed LinkedIn humble-brag announcing his HBS acceptance, admit Michael O’Connolly may not be Boston-bound after all. O’Connolly, 27, thought he’d done everything right. A self-described “risk-taker” who has “always done things my own way,” he followed in his father’s footsteps to attend Princeton before…
