This feat is extremely rare, as most top students do not apply to all colleges and even if they did, the acceptance rate into these schools are less than 10%. "By applying to all eight, I figured it would better the chances of getting into one”, Kwasi told NY Times.
Kwasi ranks No. 11 in a class of 647 at William Floyd, which puts him in the top 2% of his class. His SAT score, at 2,250 out of 2,400 points, puts him in the 99th percentile for African-American students.
"My heart skipped a beat when he told me he was applying to all eight," says Nancy Winkler, a guidance counselor at William Floyd High School, where Enin attends class. "In 29 years as a counselor, I've never seen anything like this. It's a big deal when we have students apply to one or two Ivies. To get into one or two is huge. It was extraordinary."Kwasi (pictured above with his family) has a few months to decide which school he wants to attend.
