(NEW YORK) — A New York teen who had offers from all eight Ivy League schools said on Wednesday he will attend Yale in the fall.
Kwasi Enin announced his decision at a news conference in the gymnasium at William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach, N.Y.
Enin scored a 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT — placing him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam. He also ranks in the top 2 percent of his class.
Despite his success, Enin said never in his wildest dreams did he think he would get into Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.
Enin, who is also a violinist, was accepted to Princeton in December and then heard from the remaining seven schools on March 27.
Enin has said he wants to follow in the steps of his parents, both immigrants from Ghana, and study medicine.
