Most high school seniors are lucky enough to get into eight schools, let alone the best of the best.
But one New Jersey teen has her choice of all eight Ivy League institutions. Ifeoma White-Thorpe is a senior at Morris Hills High. The teen told WABC that she was trembling when she heard the news.
“I was shaking, 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 …” the teen recalls.
Ifeoma not only was granted admission by all eight Ivy Leagues institutions, but the Honor Roll AP student also got into Stanford University.
The hard part isn’t getting accepted, it’s choosing for Ifeoma and that’s a great problem to have.
“I got into Harvard early action so I figured I’ll just go there, so then I got into all the others and I was like, wait now I don’t know where I want to go,” Ifeoma said.
Ifeoma also told WABC that financial aid and scholarships would make the decision easier.
“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.
Now THIS is a happy headline!
