New Jersey teenager Ifeoma White-Thorpe has a tough decision ahead of her after receiving acceptance letters from all eight Ivy League schools.
Harvard, Yale, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, and Princeton accepted the Morris Hills High School senior. She also applied to Stanford and was accepted.
“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 and then I was like, what did I say?” White-Thorpe said to ABC7.
She said she chose the schools because she’d like to study biology, and eventually work in global health, and all the schools have excellent research facilities.
White-Thorpe also won the National Liberty Museum: Selma Speech & Essay Contest in 2015 when she was a sophomore. She’s student government president and aces her AP classes.
So how is White-Thorpe going to decide which university to attend after she graduates in June?
Her parents, Andre and Patricia White-Thorpe, are leaving the decision to their daughter.
However, she said, “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.”
