The Denville, New Jersey, high school senior has been accepted into all eight Ivy League schools plus Stanford.

“Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton and Stanford,” White-Thorpe told WABC-TV.

“I was like, I might as well shoot my shot and apply,” White-Thorpe said.

She told WABC-TV now that she’s been accepted into her dream colleges, the hard part is going to be deciding which one to attend when she graduates in June.

“I got into Harvard early action so I figured I’ll just go there. Then I got into all the others, and I was like, wait now I don’t know where I want to go,” White-Thorpe told WABC-TV.

White-Thorpe enrolled in Advanced Placement classes at Morris Hills High School, where she is the student government president.

“I think my love for poetry and writing just really stood out,” she told WABC-TV.

White-Thorpe wants to study biology and go into the global health business.

“Education is essential for change, and I aspire to be that change,” she said earlier in her high school career

The 17-year-old’s parents said they’ll let her decide which school she wants to attend, and White-Thorpe said she’ll make her decision based on financial aid offerings.
