To get into one Ivy League University is a challenge but to land an acceptance letter from all eight is a feat that many can only dream of; however, for New Jersey teenager Ifeoma White-Thorpe, it is reality.
“I was like, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, like this might be eight out of eight,” the teen told CNN when asked what was her reaction when she opened the eight acceptance letter, “and I clicked it and it said ‘Congratulations’ and I was like oh my goodness!”
White-Thorpe, a senior at Morris Hills High School, has to choose between Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth, Brown, and for good measure, Stanford, not an Ivy League, but an elite choice none-the-less.
With a desire to study biology and pursue a career in global health, White-Thorpe decided to apply to all of the schools because all of the schools “have great research facilities”. So, where will she go in the fall? Well, the gifted teen is still undecided but whatever the choice, it will definitely be a top-notch choice!
