Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old student at William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach, N.Y received acceptance letters from all eight Ivy League schools – Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.
In addition to the above eight, he was also accepted by Duke, Stony Brook University, SUNY Geneseo and Binghamton University.
Enin scored 2,250 on his SATs, placing him in the 99th percentile. Still, the Long Island teen said he wasn’t banking on getting into all eight prestigious universities.
“By applying to all eight, I figured it would better the chances of getting into one,” Enin, a first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Ghana, told the New York Daily News.
What school will be his choice? Enin says that he’s leaning towards Yale.
“They seem to embody all the kinds of things I want in a college,” he said. “The family. The wonderful education. The amazing diverse students. Financial aid as well.”
