5 is better than none and still shows his intelligence and abilities. Also, Ghana is correct to keep him from fold of Black America.

Only? How many blacks, asians or whites get accepted to 5? It is not often, gifted kids are the minority, regardless of race.
The comment "not your typical black" rubbed me the wrong way, like blacks are unintelligent, as it was a walk in the park for whites to get accepted to even ONE Ivy League.

Both teenagers are intelligent and gifted, regardless of their background. It is not where you are from or where your parents are from, but what you do. The one accepted in five Ivy Leagues was the son of a poor single mom, and the one accepted by 8 was the son of doctors who now work as nurses, so both had a different backgrounds, different life situations, yet they both achieved something that is quite difficult for kids of any race.

And I don't see anything wrong with him choosing an Ivy League over a black university.

D.C. High Schooler Accepted Into Five Ivy League Schools


For many high school seniors, sending out college applications is one of the most stressful events of the year, but for one D.C. student, getting in was easy, and now it's time to decide where to go.

Seventeen-year-old Avery Coffey is a student at Benjamin Banneker High School, a four-sport student athlete and the recipient of five ivy league school acceptance letters.

With an acceptance roster that includes Harvard, Yale, Brown, University of Pennsylvania and Princeton, the southeast D.C. native has the world at his fingertips.

"I think Harvard has a slight edge, but I'm still trying to decide," he said.

Raised by a single mother in one of the poorest wards in the District, Coffey did not have an easy road to success, but against the odds, he has managed to accomplish a feat few else will.

In addition to the ivies, Coffey has also been offered full rides at George Washington University and Howard University.

When asked the secret to his striking success, the academic wunderkind says, "If you come here and you know exactly what you want to do and have the determination to do the work, you will be successful here."
