Meet The Nigerian Teenager, Ifeoma,Granted Admission By Eight Ivy League Schools In The US

Nigerian Ifeoma White-Thorpe has been granted admission by eight different Ivy league schools in the United States Of America.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe is a New Jersey high school student, born by Nigerian parents, has done a
clean sweep of her college applications, racking
up acceptances from all eight Ivy League
schools as well as Stanford, just for good measure.

She got admitted to Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton and Stanford.

Ifeoma who attends Morris Hills High School in
Denville, is now dealing with a happier problem— figuring out which of the prestigious schools
she’d like to go to in order to further her education, which she thinks will be focused on
global health.

Her proud parents, Andre and Patricia White- Thorpe, said they will leave the final decision up
to the brilliant teen, granted with the letters she has in front of her, there’s really not a bad
choice she can make.

Patricia, nee Eluemunor,
is a pharmacist, according to her records, while the husband is a computer expert.

“I want to go into global health and study biology, and so many of them have great
research facilities, so I was like, I might as well just shoot my shot and apply,” Ifeoma told

“I got into Harvard early-action, so I figured I’ll just go there, so then I got into all the others
and I was like, ‘Wait, now I don’t know where I want to go,’” Ifeoma added.

When she got her acceptance letters, she
almost couldn’t believe it.
“I was shaking, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, oh my
gosh, like this might be eight out of eight,’ and I
clicked it and it said ‘Congratulations,’ and I was
like, ‘Oh my goodness,’ and then I was like,
‘What did I say?’” she recalled. “I think my love
for poetry and writing just really stood out.”

“At this point, none of the schools I’ve applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I’m
praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money.

Shout out to all of those schools, please give me something,” Ifeoma said with a laugh.

The Ivy League is made of up Brown University,
Columbia University, Cornell University,
Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the
University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University
and Yale University.
The top 10 ranked schools for biology in the
country are as follows, according to U.S. News
and World Report: Harvard (1), the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1),
Stanford (1), the University of California – Berkeley (4) and the California Institute of Technology (5).
