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.

congrats to both of them. 

I would imagine they are spending a lot of time talking to department chairs and current students of the whatever  major they want to study.

That's great. I wonder if he applied to any other schools like Stanford or Northwestern.

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.


sigh

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 thoughOuch

These Reddit Users Can't Get How A Black Student Got Into All 8 Ivy League Schools

The Huffington Post  | by  Emily Thomas

KWASI

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.

In a racially fueled Reddit thread centered around Enin’s story, many users embroiled by his sweeping acceptance run say he only got in because of his race.

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 plays.

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:
