The high school senior accepted to all eight Ivy League universities has made The Decision. In a LeBron-like move, Kwasi Enin held a press conference at his Long Island high school to announce he's taking his talents to New Haven. Looks like Cleveland got robbed again.
Enin scored a 2250 out of 2400 on the SAT, and was accepted to Duke and three SUNY campuses in addition to his full sweep of the Ivies. College counselors say few students even apply to all 8, and few of those who do have pulled off the feat.
"It's a big deal when we have students apply to one or two Ivies. To get into one or two is huge. It was extraordinary," said Enin's own high school counselor, Nancy Winkler.
Enin, a first-generation Ghanian-American, took 11 AP classes in high school while playing violin, singing in an a cappella group and volunteering at a hospital's radiology department. Both of his parents are nurses.
He says he picked Yale because of its music programs and the financial aid package it offered.
In addition to continuing his study of the violin, Enin plans to go to medical school and become a doctor.
