When 17 year old Kwasi Enin applied to Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania for college, he hoped to be accepted to at least one of them.

Kwasi, born to Ghanaian immigrant parents, had emerged among the top one percent at William Floyd High School, a state-run school on Long Island, New York state and applied to all the US’ ivy-league colleges. In a rare feat he gained admissions to all eight of them. In the end, Kwasi chose Yale, arguing that the University’s “deep appreciation and love for music, like mine was very critical for me deciding to go there.”
