Student With Very Bright Future Accepted By All 8 Ivy League Schools
The next time you hear someone complaining about "kids today," think of this teen.
Harold Ekeh, 17, has been accepted at all eight Ivy League schools. His decision of where to go is made even harder, though, because he was also accepted by MIT, Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, NYU and Stony Brook University.
It shouldn't surprise you to know that Ekeh gets straight As and got a 2270 on his SATs.
Ekeh, who hails from Long Island, NY (his parents came to the US from Nigeria), is ready to embrace whatever school he chooses:
My parents left comfortable lives in Nigeria for their kids to have opportunities. So I take advantage of every single opportunity that has been afforded to me."
For the moment, Ekeh, who has his eyes on becoming a neurosurgeon, is strongly considering Columbia and Yale, which just so happens to be where Kwasi Enin, another student accepted by all eight Ivy League schools goes.
