Will she choose Columbia? Or maybe Yale? What about Harvard? Ifeoma White-Thorpe is still trying to decide which university she wants to spend the next four years of her life at, but it won't be easy — the New Jersey teenager was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools, plus 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,'" she told ABC 7. White-Thorpe, who is student body president, excels in AP classes, and won the national Selma Speech and Essay Contest in 2015, graduates from Morris Hills High School in Rockaway this June. Her parents, Andre and Patricia White-Thorpe, say it is entirely up to her which school to attend; Ifeoma says it will most likely come down to which school offers the best financial aid package.
