Student gets accepted to all 8 Ivy Leagues
Harvard's acceptance rate was 5.9 percent this year.

April 1 (UPI) -- High-school student Kwasi Enin did the near impossible and was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.

Enin is a first-generation American from William Floyd High School in New York. His parents emigrated from Ghana. He was accepted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia.

Enin scored a 2,250 on his SATs, putting him in the 99th percentile. He says he has not made a decision and is waiting to review financial aid packages, but is leaning towards Yale.

"They seem to embody all the kinds of things I want in a college," he said. "The family. The wonderful education. The amazing diverse students. Financial aid as well."

Enin says that he would like to be a physician, possibly a cardiologist or neurologist.

As if getting accepted to the elite eight of education wasn't impressive enough, Enin was also accepted to Duke, Stony Brook University, SUNY Geneseo and Binghamton University.

Please don't go to Yale.  Of all the Ivies, Yale - and Brown - will do you the worst damage intellectually and spiritually.

Not surprising.  Every one of these schools has diversity goals and diversity departments made up of administrators who are looking to improve their racial profiles.  Given the quality of our inner city schools, the pool of highly qualified minority applicants is very low, so when an exceptional black kid shows up on the radar the admissions people go clamoring. 

Being accepted is relatively easy.  The real game begins when they start figuring out what this student's financial requirements are going to be.  I have no doubt he'll get a free ride to one of the best universities our country has to offer.

I also have no doubt he'll be turned into a motivated liberal by the time he graduates.
