The Long Island high school senior who was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools says he is heading to Yale.
Kwasi Enin announced his decision during a news conference at William Floyd High School Wednesday with the type of fanfare usually reserved for college football and basketball recruits.
Enin, who scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on his SAT, was accepted by Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania earlier this year.
He also was accepted at Duke and three State University of New York campuses.
Enin said the school’s inviting atmosphere, emphasis on music and financial aid offerings all contributed to him choosing Yale.
At the news conference in the school gym, Enin thanked his parents and educators who helped him along the way.
