A Long Island high schooler has run the Ivy League table.
Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old senior at William Floyd High School in Mastic, has been accepted into each of the eight elite Ivy colleges and universities.
“By applying to all eight, I figured it would better the chances of getting into one,” he said.
Collectively, the Ivy League schools accepted less than 9% of all applicants for the class of 2018, ranging from 5.9% at Harvard to 14% at Cornell.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in my 15 years as a high school counselor,” said Nancy Winkler, Enin’s guidance counselor. “He’s going to be a leader in whatever he chooses.”
Enin, the son of immigrant nurses from Ghana, wants to be a physician.
“I’m thinking of being a cardiologist or neurologist,” said Enin, who lives in Shirley. “A doctor is a community leader, a protector, someone who people turn to … when they need help.”
