LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -

A New York high school student has been accepted to all eight Ivy League schools across the country.

Kwasi Enin, a senior at William Floyd High School in Long Island, scored a total of 2250 on his SAT out of 2400, placing him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam.

Despite ranking in the top two percent in his high school class, Enin told Newsday, he never expected to receive acceptance letters from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Darthmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.

"I thought I would get into one or two," he said. "I simply thought I would apply. I knew it was crazy."

He said he plans to follow in his parents' footsteps and study medicine in college.

"I think my preference is Yale. I still have to compare all these wonderful schools," he said.

Enin was also accepted to Duke University, Stony Brook University, SUNY Geneseo and Binghamton University.
