Many soon-to-be college students are now facing a difficult time choosing which college to go to for their freshman year.This decision-making process is even more difficult for this 17-year old teen from Denver who got accepted to all 8 Ivy League Schools, in addition to Stanford University.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe was accepted to the 8 Ivy League Schools, plus Stanford University, but has not really decided yet which school to attend, The Mercury News reported. She is the one who leads the student government and is also taking Advanced Placement courses at Morris Hills High School. She intends to study Biology in college but her decision will depend on which university is going to offer the most financial aid.

White-Thorpe was shaking when she received the acceptance letters, and she told CNN how she felt when she opened the eighth letter. Now she has to choose among Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown.

Aside from Biology, she also wants to pursue a career in global health, and that is why she decided to apply to  all Ivy League because they all offer great research facilities.

It is indeed an achievement to be able to get into all Ivies, and there were also a couple of other students in the past who achieved the same success - Kwasi Enin in 2014, Harold Ekeh in 2015 and Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna and Kelly Hyles last year.

As to which college she will be attending, her parents said that the decision will depend on her. It might be a really difficult decision to make because aside from these schools, she also has Stanford University to consider as part of her choices.
