Meet Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna, a senior at Elmont Memorial High School on Long Island. Because of the unique way advanced placement courses are weighted, this girl has a 101.6 GPA on a 100-point scale.
She also has 12 very prestigious acceptance letters that will require her full attention for the next few weeks because she needs to make a decision on her school by May 1. Here are all of the places she’s been accepted:
- the University of Pennsylvania
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- New York University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Johns Hopkins
Yeah, the first eight are the Ivys.
In an interview with NBC News 12, she said this:
My family is so excited. Sometimes I feel like they get so much more excited than me. They literally scream. When I called my mom and told her, she was screaming on the phone.
