Real Black Girl Magic: This Teen Got Into All 8 Ivy League Schools

Oh, and also Stanford.

College acceptance season is upon us. Also prom season, but more on that later. While most high school seniors may be elated at the possibility of being able to leave their parents' house, New Jersey teen Ifeoma White-Thorpe is swarmed with options. White-Thorpe was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools (Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, UPenn, Dartmouth, Brown, Princeton) AND Stanford. Go off, girl!

Although every elite institution wants White-Thorpe to matriculate, she hasn't decided where she'll be headed in the fall just yet. 

"At this point, none of the school's I've applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I'm praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money. Shout out to all of those schools, please give me something," she told ABC.

So who's going to swoop in and offer her financial assistance first? Your move, Ivies.
