Kwasi Enin, a senior at William Floyd High School in Shirley, New York, applied to, and was accepted at, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale.
For Kwasi, applying to a competitive college wasn't exactly a gamble. He has an SAT score of 2,250 out of 2,400, which places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam. He has taken and scored high on many Advanced Placement exams. He is an athlete, a shot putter, in fact, and his baritone voice can belt out a tune when he's not playing viola for the school orchestra.
Still, he said, "I've never heard of someone getting all eight."
I’ve never heard of someone applying to all eight Ivy League schools. Enin was accepted at four other colleges as well. Where will he go to school? He hasn’t decided, but is leaning toward Yale. Financial aid offerings may sway his decision. Enin plans to study medicine. -via Uproxx
