Student accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools picks Yale

Kwasi Enin had a difficult choice to make: The high school senior was accepted to all eight of the Ivies, in addition to several other colleges, and with graduation right around the corner, it was time to make a decision. After weighing the pros and cons of each university (and, wisely, waiting to hear about financial aid packages), he's made his selection: Enin is headed to Yale.

The 17-year-old, whose parents emigrated from Ghana, announced his pick during a press conference. The Long Island teen told the crowd that he loved the Yale campus, liked the university's emphasis on music (he plays the violin and is a singer), and plans on attending medical school once he's finished in four years. He also imparted some words of wisdom to his fellow high school seniors: "You need to have your passion, the things that you love doing most, to push yourself as far as you can go," he said. --Catherine Garcia
