Kwasi Enin is taking his brains to Yale.
In a move usually reserved for highly recruited athletes, a suburban New York high school student who was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools announced Wednesday before a phalanx of national media cameras that he has decided to be a member of Yale University’s Class of 2018.
He explained he had been thinking about Yale, but the clincher was a campus visit last week.
“I met geniuses from all across the world and everyone there was so friendly and inviting and the residential college system there is just wonderful for each student,” the 17-year-old Shirley resident told reporters.
Enin, whose parents emigrated from Ghana in the 1980s, attracted national attention this spring after being accepted at all eight Ivies plus several New York state colleges. He made a cameo appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” and his accomplishment was the topic of a jibe during “Saturday Night Live’s” Weekend Update segment.
On his application essay to the Ivy League schools, the Long Island teenager wrote passionately about his love for music, although his intention is to someday go to medical school and become a physician.
