Seventeen-year-old Kwasi Enin, of Shirley, has a tough pick ahead of him after he was accepted at all of them.
"I simply thought I would apply to all eight," he said. "I knew it was crazy, but I hoped I would get one or two. But they all came, and I said there was no way."
Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania all said yes. And on Wednesday, Enin will pick the school he plans to call home for the next four years.
Enin's teachers at William Floyd High School in Mastic are not surprised, calling him the ideal student.
He posted near perfect scores on the SATs his Advanced Placement exams, and he's also an athlete and singer.
He scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT, which places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam.
He has surpassed the accomplishments of some of his uncles and cousins, who were accepted to several Ivies.
Kwasi said financial aid will play a role in his choice, and he's previously said he was leaning towards Yale.
He wants to study medicine.
