Kwasi Enin, the Long Island teen who was accepted to every Ivy League school, held a press conference today to announce his choice of school. He decided on Yale.
What exactly swayed his decision? Well, it turns out it was Yale’s atmosphere, financial aid package, and its reputation for medicine and music.
Enin said this of Yale: “I met people who were just like me – diverse in both science and music – and they told me how manageable it is doing both.”
At the news conference today he thanked his parents and educators who assisted him along the way.
“Without their assistance, I would not be in this position,” he said. “I would not have had the initial drive to strive for excellence.”
His mom said that her son is “proving himself to be on the right path.” Her and her husband had wanted to instill “strong moral qualities” in Enin and his sister since they were little, she said.
His dad said that he had always been strict when it came to his children’s academics.
“I told him, ‘Look, your worst grade in school should be a 95,'” he said.
Enin got 2,250 out of 2,400 on his SAT. Besides Yale, he was also accepted at Columbia, Brown, Harvard, Dartmouth, Cornell, Princeton, and the University of Pennsylvania.
We here at THZ are very proud of Enin, and we know he will have a lot of success at Yale.
