Meet Harold Ekeh, The Student We Want To Be
Usually, we don't hear stories about teens like Harold and their college experiences. That's because usually, we wouldn't care. Mr. Ekeh is an exception to that rule, and let me tell you why.
First, I want to extend some congratulations to this kid. He applied to 13 colleges, 8 of those being Ivy League schools. Harold got accepted into all of them. Every single Ivy League school accepted this young man. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Columbia, UPenn, and Cornell all wanted this kid. Not only is this feat amazing, but credit to Harold and his work ethic for completing this task. Adding on to that, he came from Nigeria to the U.S. 10 years ago. Harold scored a 2270 out of 2400 on the SATs and would like to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
So Harold, you've done what all of us which we could do. Hard work does pay off, congratulations on your feat.
