I think both boys should go to Yale. black people I know who have gone there tend to like it. My hs boyfriend cried when he didn't get into Yale.
Does Yale offer loan free financial aid yet like Harvard? That might play into the decision as well for the DC kid.
I THINK so. Not 100% certain.
And these are good institutions I don't think it has anything to do w/whiteness and it's rare for ANYONE to be accepted into every single Ivy League, black or white. And I love HU but the resources and facilities available to me while there are very different from those available to me at a PWI. I don't begrudge HU for that at all, but it is what it is.
D.C. High Schooler Accepted Into Five Ivy League Schools
yes, he was only accepted to 5
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.
sarcasm is wasted on the internet
get out your feelings
not my feelings, i replied to what you wrote and continued on what i was going to write about anyways. but i did not noticed the sarcasm at first though
Earlier this week the Internet met Kwasi Enin,
a student who got accepted into all eight Ivy League universities. It’s
an impressive feat for any student to accomplish; however, some
commenters on Reddit are claiming the 17-year-old student from Long
Island, N.Y., didn’t get accepted based on his merit alone.
racially fueled Reddit thread centered around Enin’s story, many users
embroiled by his sweeping acceptance run say he only got in because of
According to information compiled from USA Today and CNN,
Enin scored a 2250 (out of 2400) on his SAT and placed in the 98th
percentile of all students. He ranks 11th in his high school class of
647, and he has taken 11 Advanced Placement classes. He volunteers at
Stony Brook University Hospital's radiology department, and he sings in
his school's a cappella group. He throws shot put and discus for the
track and field team, and he consistently lands lead roles in school
Despite the impressive resume, some don’t think it was enough for his 8/8 acceptance rate. Here are a smattering of some of the racially charged Reddit rants in reaction to Enin’s accomplishment:
Thankfully, others quickly came to Enin's defense:
