Nigerian Teen Offered Admission In 8 Ivy League Schools In US Including Harvard & Yale



This is breath-taken. A Nigeria Teen Ifeoma White-Thorpe, born and brought up in New Jersey has been faced with a huge problem, as she has been offered admission to 8 Ivy league schools in United States.

Born by Nigerian parents,  Ifeoma applied to eight Ivy League schools in the United States, knowing they have great research facilities for her dream course - Biology. She had hoped that at least one of the prestigious institutions would accept her but she got more than she ever bargained for. She has been accepted in all 8 schools.

She got admitted to Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton and Stanford.

"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 told WABC. "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 added.

On her reaction when she got her acceptance letters, Ifeoma said she was dumbfounded.

"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?’” she recalled. "I think my love for poetry and writing just really stood out."

"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 with a laugh.

Her proud parents, Andre and Patricia White-Thorpe, said they will leave the final decision up to the brilliant Ifeoma. Patricia, nee Eluemunor, is a pharmacist, according to her records, while the husband is a computer expert.

The Ivy League is made of up Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University.
