Ifeoma White-Thorpe has yet to decide which Ivy League school will she go to. After learning about the eighth acceptance letter, the teen was shaking out of shock and joy.

“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!” she recalled to WABC-TV. The teen wanted to become a cardiologist someday.

White-Thorpe, 17,  has shown academic excellence in her high school years. She was also a student government president in her previous school, Morris Hills High School. The New Jersey teen has to choose between 8 Ivy League colleges such as Harvard, Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia. She is also into Stanford and got also accepted for the ninth time—talk about ‘real’ problems of a soon-to-be college student.

She said she applied to all nine colleges because she wanted to pursue biology and the said Ivy League Schools offer excellent research facilities.

Getting into all Ivy League schools is a great achievement and has happened in rare instances. Few of the students who got accepted to all Ivies are Brittany Stinson, Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna, Munira Kalif, Stephan Stoykov, Victor Agbafe, Harold Ekeh, and Alexander Roman. Most of them chose to go to Harvard, while Alexander Roman didn’t go to any of them at all and went to MIT instead.

The question now is, where will White-Thorpe go?

Her mother, Pat, said that she wasn’t surprised at all by Ifeoma’s achievement as her daughter has always been into academics, as told to ABC News. “She was one of the 150 students out of 86,000 applicants to become a 2017 Coca-Cola Scholar. She has been a great student since kindergarten”, the mother added.

White-Thorpe spends her free time on community services, especially for the American Heart Association. In an interview with Yahoo, her high school principal Todd Toriello said that White-Thorpe understands the essence of giving back to her school. “In my relationship with her, she has always been a respectful individual and we are just so proud of her and her accomplishments”, he added.

Ifeoma White-Thorpe will graduate from Morris Hill High in June.
