Long Island Teen Accepted to all Eight Ivy League Schools.
Education....he's doing it right!
A Long Island high school senior who is the first-generation son of immigrants accomplished a feat few other students have even attempted -- getting accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.
Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania all sent acceptance letters to 17-year-old Kwasi Enin's home in Shirley. Enin, a William Floyd High School student who wants to be a physician said he couldn't believe it.
"The yesses kept coming" said Enin
Enin, a first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Ghana, scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT, according to USA Today. That places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam.
He hasn't made up his mind yet on which one he will attend but said he preferred Yale.
By the way, he was also accepted at Duke, and NYU.
