Harold Ekeh will have the choice of attending any Ivy League school of his choice. The 17-year-old senior, who currently attends Elmont High School in New York, was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.

Ekeh and his family moved to America from Nigeria when he was 8 years old. His college essay detailed how he initially struggled to adjust to a new culture and deal with his grandmother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

It took a while for him to adjust to this country’s culture, but he was able to find success in education and extracurricular activities.

Ekeh earned a 100.5 percent grade point average and speaks Igbo and Spanish. He also earned a spot as a 2015 Intel Science Talent Search semifinalist and participated in academic mentoring programs.

Along with being accepted to every Ivy League school, Ekeh was also accepted to Johns Hopkins and MIT. He plans to become a neurosurgeon.

In 2014, Oakland, California, native Kwasi Enin was also accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.

According to Business Insider, admissions rates for Ivy League schools are: Harvard (5.3 percent); Columbia University (6.1 percent); Yale University (6.49 percent); Princeton (6.9 percent); Brown University (8.4 percent); University of Pennsylvania (9.9 percent); Dartmouth College (10.3 percent); and Cornell University (14.9 percent), respectively.

    it is such a shame that 78 percent of the blacks in american colleges are nigerian ,kenyan , ethiopian , west african etc .. or asian blacks .. i mean this is not a story unless this man was american black .. we know africans are smart they are breast feed period and have hugh heads why not ?
    they dont even like african americans and they got a scam going that if you marry them and sponsor them they pay you ? they are arrogant , liers conn artist and have a million overseas scams by email … mailing false checks to american to have you deposit it to selling fake puppies on line all an attempt to cheat the tax system here .. they drive cabs to keep from immigration knowing thier income and because most are not legal thats the only job they can afford ,,goverment recently crack down on them and now they have to pay taxes next year starting uber had them investigated .
    i will be glad when they all shipp back to africa they do nothing to help black american but gossip about us and lie .. they dont want black americans even going to their churches even . they are the face of boka ram right here in our country getting passes to work here daily , and yet we PUTT THEM IN A PAPER ABOUT THEM GETTING AN EDUCATION ? HE WOULD BE THE ONLY ONE 8 COLLEGES SEEK CAUSE MOST COLLEGES KNOW THEY ARE HERE ON A STRING ..

      Lol, I just can’t avoid replying you…not to insult you or victimize the African decent. I guess you surely have a wrong direction of life and that is why you would not take anytime to think through before you say those words… There ae evil and wicked people everywhere, Europe, America are not excepted, but that does not say there are no good people… My point, not up to 30% of Africans have such barbaric traits you highlighted up there.
      Thanks.
