A total of eight Ivy League schools in the United States already sent acceptance letters to two brilliant high school students from Ann Arbor. Jadal and Taimor Williams, seniors at Huron, are now faced with one of the toughest decisions in their lives: Choose one among the world's elite universities.
The Ivy League universities that sent Jadal his acceptance letters are Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, Columbia, Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, and Brown. Moreover, per MLive, Jadal also passed the exams at the University of Michigan (UM), Duke, Stanford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), California Institute of Technology, and Harvey Mudd College. Well, he has until May 1 to decide.
According to the same source, though Taimor did not pass all eight Ivy League exams, he passed a number of elite schools too. The UM, Dartmouth, Cornell, Duke, MIT, and Berkeley sent him acceptance letters. For the record, Jadal wants to take up mechanical or electrical engineering. Taimor, on the other hand, wants to get civil and environmental engineering.
The genius twins have two more siblings, Chauncey Jr. and Shane. The former is the oldest while Shane is the youngest. Chauncey Jr., who inspired Jadal and Taimor, is currently a sophomore at the Kelley School of Business at the Indiana University. The youngest is in sixth grade at Tappan Middle School.
For the record, the twins skipped first-grade math, while Jadal also skipped seventh-grade math. Chauncey and Tory, the parents, are really proud of their kids, not just the twins. Tory teaches her children every afternoon, requiring them to finish their assignments first before playing.
Meanwhile, USA Today reported that eight Ivies had a total of 281, 060 applicants for the class of 2021. Out of those aspirants, less than 10 percent got admissions offers. Harvard had the lowest acceptance rate at just 5 percent. Below is a video from Howcast.com showing ways to make Ivies say yes.
