  • N.Y. teen accepted into all 8 Ivy League schools

    NEW YORK, April 4 (UPI) - A high school senior in New York has been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools in the United States.

    Born in Nigeria, 17 year old Harold Ekeh was accepted into all 13 schools he applied for, including MIT, Johns Hopkins University, and each Ivy League institution in the country, comprising Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.

    Ekeh scored 2270 on the SAT and was involved in several extra-curricular activities at Elmont Memorial High School in Long Island, including orchestra, drama and a college mentoring program designed to help students attend top universities.

    A 2015 Intel Science Talent Search semifinalist, Ekeh is multilingual, speaking Ibo and Spanish, and has a 100.5 percent grade point average. He said he wishes to pursue a major in neurobiology or chemistry in order to eventually become a neurosurgeon.

    Ekeh said he is still uncertain which university to choose but notes that he leans toward Yale based on his experiences competing there with the Model U.N.

    "I am very humbled by this," Ekeh told CNN. "It's not just for me, but for my school and community. We can accomplish great things here."

    Last year, another high-school senior from New York state, Kwasi Enin, the son of immigrant parents from Ghana, was also accepted into all eight Ivy League universities, which, according to CBS News, will accept less than 9 percent of applicants for the class of 2018.

    Writing work is usually a source of anxiety for me. And if the subject appears to be tough, this is amplified. I once had to write a social studies essay. I used a specialized online service. There is a big database of topics, and I was able to find what I was looking for. It is really useful that such services exist to assist and simplify learning for students.
