Kwasi Enin had a difficult choice to make: The high school senior was accepted to all eight of the Ivies, in addition to several other colleges, and with graduation right around the corner, it was time to make a decision.

B.A. Princeton
M.B.A. Pennsylvania (Wharton)
J.D. Yale
M.A. (Journalism) Columbia
M.A. (Liberal Studies) Dartmouth
M.F.A. Cornell
M.A. (American Studies) Brown
M.A. (Education) Harvard
