High school senior Kwasi Enin has decided to attend Yale this coming fall after being accepted by all eight Ivy League schools: Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania and Yale, CNN reported.
He announced his decision to accept Yale’s offer at a news conference in the gymnasium of his school, William Floyd High School.
Enin said that his visit to Yale’s campus in New Haven, Conn. in April for their newly admitted students’ “Bulldog Days” helped solidify his decision. He said that the friendliness of the student body is specifically what attracted him.
Enin is 11th in his class at William Floyd High School, which is located on Long Island, New York. He also scored a 2250 out of 2400 on his SAT, which placed him at the 98th percentile nationwide for students taking the SAT.
He has indicated an interest in majoring in biomedical engineering at Yale, adding that he is hoping to pursue a career in medicine. He added that he is also interested in the rigorous music program that Yale has to offer.
