New Jersey Teen Accepted into all 8 Ivy League Schools

 

After racking up acceptances letters from all eight Ivy League schools, a New Jersey teenager has a tough decision to make. A decision that most high school seniors can only imagine —  which Ivy League school to choose to attend in the fall.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe (17),  said she was shaking when she got the eighth acceptance letter. And that’s not all, she also got into Stanford University.

“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.

White-Thorpe, a senior and student government president at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, has to choose between the Ivy League schools made ups of Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown.

“At this point, none of the schools I’ve applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I’m praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money. Shout out to all of those schools, please give me something,” Ifeoma said with a laugh.

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.

“At this point, none of the schools I’ve applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I’m praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money. Shout out to all of those schools, please give me something,” Ifeoma said.

According to the article, her parents said the choice is totally up to her; White-Thorpe said she just doesn’t know yet.

Congratulations Ifeoma!  We wish you all the best.
