Twin teen actresses MARY-KATE and Ashley Olsen are celebrating after being accepted into America's prestigious NEW YORK UNIVERSITY.

NYU has invited them to enrol next autumn (04) at the GALLATIN SCHOOL OF INDIVIDUALISED STUDY, a college within NYU that allows students to tailor their own curriculums.

Their representative, MICHAEL PAGNOTTA, says, "Like every other senior, they had been sweating out their acceptance and they are absolutely thrilled.

"They have always taken academics very seriously. This is a major achievement for them."
