Black Teen Accepted To All 8 Ivy League Schools
Getting accepted into an Ivy League institution is a dream most high school seniors won’t experience. When it does happen, it’s something worth celebrating. Imagine the feeling of elation that came when a teenager from New Jersey was accepted to not only one, but all eight Ivy League schools.
Ifeoma White-Thorpe, a senior and student government president at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, New Jersey was reportedly shaking with excitement when she got her eighth letter.
“I was like, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, like this might be eight out of eight and I clicked it and it said ‘Congratulations’ and I was like oh my goodness!” White-Thorpe told CNN affiliate WABC-TV.
Now, White-Thorpe has the wonderful problem – which is the only way this can be described – of having to choose between attending Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown. She reportedly applied to all of them because they each “have great research facilities.”
