For most of the United States, getting into an Ivy League university is hard enough, but one New York student, was accepted in to all eight.

Kwasi Enin, a senior at William Floyd High School in Shirley, New York, was accepted to all eight Ivy League universities – Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Cornell.

“I simply thought I would apply,” Enin told Long Island Newsday. “I was hoping to get one or two. Then they all came, and I said, ‘There’s no way.'”

Enin is a first-generation American, whose parents emigrated from Ghana.

The 17-year-old violist and aspiring physician reportedly scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on his SAT.

According to NBCNews, Enin has not made a decision as to which university he will attend, but he seems to be leaning towards Yale.

“I think my preference is Yale. they seem to embody all the kinds of things I want in a college, family, the wonderful education the amazing diverse students and financially as well. I think Yale has all that for me right now I still have to compare all these schools ..all these wonderful schools.”

CNN reported Enin was also accepted to Duke University and their State University of New York campuses.
