High school senior accepted at eight Ivy League schools

Student Gets Accepted To All 8 Ivy League Universities

Kwasi Enin, of Shirley, has been accepted at all eight Ivy League schools to which he applied.

A New York teen has made America's Most Wanted list ... but it's professors - not police - who are after him.

Kwasi Enin, 17, was accepted into ALL EIGHT Ivy League schools!

Enin scored a near-perfect 2250 on the SAT and is in the top 2 percent of his class.

He says he wants to study medicine and become a cardiologist. He hasn't settled on a school just yet, but he did tell Long Island's Newsday he's leaning toward Yale, saying, "They seem to embody all the kinds of things I want in a college. The family. The wonderful education. The amazing diverse students. Financial aid as well."

This is obviously an impressive accomplishment. The Washington Post reports last year - more than 250,000 students applied for one of the eight prestigious schools - which accepted less than 9% of all applicants.

But, what may be an even bigger challenge for Enin: Walmart. Last year the company accepted just 2.6 percent of applicants for jobs in DC. We'd still suggest Enin stick to school for now.

That is what I was thinking! Walmart has nothing to do with this story.

thomasweber 31.... Your IQ must be 31. What a dumb thing to say. You obviously don't know what SAT means. Step away from the keyboard because obviously you are too dumb to post alone.

Do you know what SAT means? And what difference does it make? Are you going to vomit your lunch because somebodies grandma is different than yours.. Besides; everybody knows what SAT means. Hopefully its something like: "She is sure pretty and she SAT in my lap."

To those bashing this kid, be careful, he might be the one operating on you one day.
