(CHRISTIANPOST) — In an extremely rare feat, according to college counselors, Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old first-generation American from Shirley, N.Y., has been accepted to all eight elite Ivy League universities and he is receiving praise from across the United States.

“Congratulations to Kwesi Enin on being accepted to all eight of the Ivy League universities!” noted Gospel star Yolanda Adams in a post on her Facebook page Tuesday.

College counselors told USA Today that the feat is so rare among college applicants that very few dare to apply to all eight because they look for different qualities in their freshman class. Almost none are invited to attend all of them.
