New Jersey 17-year-old girl has been accepted into all eight Ivy League school and yet to decide on which to attend. Schools most high school students can only dream of.
The Nigeria-born Ifeoma White-Thorpe, high school senior and student of government president at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, who wants to study biology and pursue a career in global health said she was shaking when she got the eighth acceptance letters.
"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 decided to apply to them all, since all of the Ivy League schools "have great research facilities." She is to choose between Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown.
When asked of her choice, her parents said the choice is totally up to her; And White-Thorpe said she just doesn't know yet. She can add another elite school to the mix as well, she also got into Stanford.
