Long Island teen Kwasi Enin now knows what it means to be spoiled for choice. The 17-year-old has been accepted to not one Ivy League university, but all eight.

“By applying to all eight, I figured it would better the chances of getting into one,” said Enin.

As a senior at William Floyd High School in Mastic, NY Enin ranks number 11 in his class, and scored 2,250 out of 2,400 points on his SAT, which puts him in the 99th percentile for African-American students in the country, reports USA Today.

An all-around achiever, the son of Ghanaian immigrants, will have completed 11 Advanced Placement classes by the time he graduates this spring. He also sings in the schools a capella group and volunteers at his local hospital.

Nancy Winkler, Enin’s guidance counselor says, “I’ve never seen anything like it in my 15 years as a high school counselor. He’s going to be a leader in whatever he chooses.”

Enin’s parents are both nurses and he plans to follow their footsteps, “I’m thinking of being a cardiologist or neurologist,” said Enin. “A doctor is a community leader, a protector, someone who people turn to…when they need help.”

So far Princeton has offered the most appealing aid package but he is still waiting on offers from Columbia, Cornell or Harvard. He will be making his final decision at the beginning of May.

The news comes after a string of academic accomplishments for young black males. Avery Coffey of Washington, DC was accepted to five Ivy League colleges while Chad Thomas, a Florida teen, received 150 scholarship offers for his football and musical skills.
