LONG ISLAND, N.Y. (KMSP) -

A high school senior from Long Island, N.Y. has been accepted to all eight Ivy League schools. What are the odds of being accepted into just one? Not good. This was not a problem for Kwasi Enin.

He's a 17-year-old senior at William Floyd High School in Mastic and wants to follow in his parents' footsteps as the son of immigrant nurses from Ghana. He's thinking of either being a cardiologist or a neurologist.

Enin told the New York Daily News that by applying to all eight, he'd at least have a better chance of getting into one.

As a group, the Ivy League schools -- that's Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton and Cornell -- accepted less than 9 percent of all applicants for the class of 2018, ranging from 5.9 percent at Harvard to 14 percent at Cornell.
