@tlcm_16As a high school senior, there are many stresses to face; SATs, what colleges will you apply to, will you get in anywhere, what DO you want to do for a living? For one Long Island student, these stresses are taking on a different form; mainly, which of the 8 Ivy League schools will he choose to study at? That's right, Kwasi Enin has a CHOICE as which of the 8 schools (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale) he will be attending in the fall. Kwasi said he applied to all eight schools so he has a better chance of getting into one of them, never dreaming he would actually be accepted into all eight. But with an SAT score of 2,250, putting him in the 99th percentile of results, it's hard to imagine him NOT getting into a whichever school he wanted. So which of the 8 will the 17-year-old student, who is in the top 2% of students at William Floyd High School, choose? Right now he says he's leaning toward Yale. "They seem to embody all the kinds of things I want in a college ," he said. "The family. The wonderful education. The amazing diverse students. Financial aid as well." But he's waiting to see what kind of financial aid is offered by each school. This strategy is probably smart considering the so-called 'sticker-price' of tuition to Harvard can be upwards of $51,000 a year (before financial aid is applied). Whichever school Kwasi ends up choosing, I'm sure he has a bright future ahead of him. He aspires to attend medical school to become a physician or maybe even a neurologist.
