Ifeoma White-Thorpe, 17 a new jersey teen also a Nigerian American got accepted to all 8 ivy schools.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe, 17, a senior at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, has been granted admission to the most prestigious colleges in the United States. She received acceptance letters from all eight Ivy League schools — Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania and Harvard. She was also accepted to Stanford University.

When Ifeoma got the acceptance letters from eight Ivy League schools. Ifeoma said: “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,”.

“I was shaking, 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 and then I was like, what did I say?” Ifeoma said.

Now that Ifeoma has been accepted to so many schools, the hard part is going to be deciding which one she will actually attend when she graduates in June.

“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.

“Do you have a choice of what school she attends at this point?” Eyewitness News Reporter Darla Miles asked her parents. “We’re leaving it up to her,” said Andre and Patricia White-Thorpe, Ifeoma’s father and mother.

“It’s a decision that may be easier than she thinks”.

“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.
