Teen Accepted To All 8 Ivy League Schools Picks Yale
The Long Island high school senior who was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools says he is heading to Yale.
Via NBC New York reports:
Kwasi Enin announced his decision during a news conference at William Floyd High School Wednesday with the type of fanfare usually reserved for college football and basketball recruits.
Enin, who scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on his SAT, was accepted by Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania earlier this year.
He also was accepted at Duke and three State University of New York campuses.
Enin thanked his parents and educations who helped him along the way.
Principal Barbara Butler said Enin “exemplifies the greatness in William Floyd, and how hard work, dedication and taking advantage of opportunities pays off.”
People questioning “why a news conference” but why not? They hold these for the big athletic stars and the colleges they choose. We applaud the decision to promote our young people who excel academically!
