Seventeen-year-old Ifeoma White-Thorpe tells WABC that she was accepted into all eight Ivy League colleges and universities, in addition to Stanford.
White-Thorpe heads the student government and takes Advanced Placement courses at Morris Hills High School. She says she wants to study biology and go into global health policy but hasn’t decided which school to attend.
She says the decision could come down to which school offers the most financial aid.
Her parents, Andre and Patricia White-Thorpe, say the decision is up to her.
The Ivy League is made of up of Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University.
