Black students throughout the U.S. have been making headlines with their multiple acceptances at top colleges and universities. Brooklyn teen Nina Uziogwe is the latest high school senior to make the news for being wanted by several elite schools.
The Stuyvesant High School senior, who plans to study medicine, was accepted to Harvard, Dartmouth, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Princeton and Yale.
The Nigerian teen took multiple AP courses throughout high school and has also participated in a number of extracurricular activities, according to News12 Brooklyn.
Uziogwe told News12 that the financial aid packages she’s offered will be the main determinant of the school she decides on.
Recently, The Huffington Post also reported on a Chicago teen who was accepted to 23 HBCUs, black quadruplets who were all accepted into Yale, Harvard and other top schools, a Nigerian teen Ifeoma White-Thorpe, who received acceptance letters from every Ivy League in the nation.
Class of 2021 is looking black and gifted.
