For senior high school students, this is the time of the year when their life can make a huge turn.
This is the moment when they will start to receive the results of their application to prestigious colleges and universities that they wanted to attend.
Some might not be that lucky to get accepted and some might get the letter of approval.
LBut for this New Jersey teenager, the results she got are more that what she could ask.
Ifeoma White-Thorpe has to make a tough decision very soon. She needs to decide on which Ivy League school to attend in the fall.
The problem is, she needs to choose only one of the eight schools that accepted her application.
Yes, all of the Ivy League schools (eight of them) approved her application.
She now has to choose between Harvard University, Yale University, Cornell University, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Dartmouth College and Brown University.
In one of her multiple interviews, Ifeoma White-Thorpe said she was really shaking upon receiving the eight letter of acceptance.
“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 said.
Ifeoma White-Thorpe is arguably one of the best students that ever attended Morris high School in Rockaway.
She is the student government president at her school.
She said that she wanted to pursue a career in global health.
And because all of the Ivy League schools have great research and study facilities she decided to apply to them all hoping that at least one of them will approve her application.
“I want to go into global health and study biology and so many of them have great research facilities, so I was like, I might as well just shoot my shot and apply,” Ifeoma said.
Little did she know that all eight of them are more than willing to let her become one of their students.
Now that Ifeoma White-Thorpe has been accepted to the eight schools, she now has to decide which one she will actually attend when she graduates in June this year.
“I got into Harvard early action so I figured I’ll just go there, so then I got into all the others and I was like, wait now I don’t know where I want to go,” Ifeoma said in one interview.
Since all of the schools approved her application, the decision now lies which one could give her scholarships and financial aid.
“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,” Ifeoma said.
