New Jersey high school student, Ifeoma White-Thorpe received acceptance letters from all eight Ivy League schools. The Morris Hills High School student and student government president applied to all eight Ivy League schools: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth and Princeton. The 17-year-old said she was shaking when she got the eighth acceptance letter. She said:
“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.
She wants to study biology and pursue a career in global health. Since all of the Ivy League schools “have great research facilities,” she decided to apply to them all.White-Thorpe said she isn’t sure which school to pick from in the fall, but her parents said the choice is totally up to her.To crown it all, Ifeoma also applied to Stanford, another top-tier school and was also accepted.
