A teenager from Long Island, New York accomplished quite a feat by being accepted into all eight Ivy League universities.
According to the New York Daily News, Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old senior at William Floyd High School, applied to all eight schools to increase his chances of at least getting into one.
However, instead of only one acceptance, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale University all accepted him.
USA Today noted that college counselors have said that the acceptance into all eight schools is extremely rare. Few students even apply to all eight and almost none are invited to attend all of them.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in my 15 years as a high school counselor,” said Nancy Winkler, who is Enin’s guidance counselor. “He’s going to be a leader in whatever he chooses."
The teen wants to become a physician, but first he must decide which of the elite schools he would like to attend.
