It’s that time of the year when high school seniors await acceptance letters from their schools of choice. For Ifeoma White-Thorpe of New Jersey, it’s nothing less than a magical time.
The high school senior was accepted by all eight Ivy League schools and Stanford University.
For most, getting into even one Ivy League college is a huge feat. Thorpe, on the other hand, has the opportunity to pick which one she wants to go to.
“I was like, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, like this might be eight out of eight and I clicked it and it said ‘Congratulations’ and I was like oh my goodness!” White-Thorpe told ABC7.
Thorpe is a senior at Morris Hills High School. She is an AP student and the president of the school’s student government.
Thorpe nurses a love for poetry and writing and thinks this is something which stood out in her college applications.
In the future, she wants to pursue a career in global health and plans to study biology at college. Since all of the Ivy League schools “have great research facilities,” she decided to apply to them all.
The tough decision now is to decide where she wants to go. The decision will come down to what the schools offer to her financially.
“At this point none of the schools I’ve applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I’m praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money, shout out to all of those schools, please give me something,” Thorpe said when speaking to ABC7.2017-04-05
