Long Island, NY student Kwasi Enin applied to all 8 Ivy League schools and got an acceptance letter from each one, Newsday reported on Monday March 31.

The straight-A Mastic student applied to all 8 schools in hopes of getting accepted into one of them.

It is not an easy task to gain acceptance into an Ivy League school as they are highly competitive and collectively accepted less than 20% of applicants for the Fall 2014 semester.

“It has been a little crazy, but I never really feel overwhelmed because I love what I do and I have great support,” Enin told the Daily News.

Enin ranked in at the 99th percentile on his SAT’s and is heavily in his high schools music department.
Enin is a first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Ghana.

Enin’s parents are nurses and he wants to follow in a similar path and study biomedical engineering. The 17-year-old has yet to officially choose a college but expressed his interest in Yale because of the institutions reputation for medicine and music.
