LONG ISLAND, N.Y. - A New York teen that was accepted into all eight Ivy League schools has made a decision.

In a news conference Wednesday, high school senior Kwasi Enin announced his decision to attend Yale, ABC News reported.

Enin placed in the 99th percentile after he scored a 2250 out of 2400 on his SAT’s. He is also ranked in the top two percent of his graduating class.

Despite his success in the classroom, the teen said he was shocked he received acceptance letters from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.

Enin said he plans to study medicine, just like both of his parents, who are immigrants from Ghana.
