ELMONT, N.Y. – A suburban New York teenager, accepted at all 13 colleges to which he applied, including the eight Ivy League schools, now faces his next big test: deciding where to go.
Elmont High School senior Harold Ekeh (EH'-kay) is the second Long Island student in as many years to be accepted by all eight of the nation's most prestigious colleges.
Last year, William Floyd High School's Kwasi Enin (KWAH'-zee EE'-nin) chose Yale among all eight Ivies.
Seventeen-year-old Ekeh has until May 1 to decide where he'll go. He has said he's leaning toward Yale.
Coincidentally, both Ekeh and Enin are immigrants from African nations.
Ekeh moved to the U.S. from Nigeria when he was 8. Enin hails from Ghana.
Ekeh has a 100.51 grade-point average and wants to be a neurosurgeon.
