(CNN)Talk about an embarrassment of riches.

A New Jersey teenager has to make a decision soon most high school seniors can only dream of -- deciding on which Ivy League school to attend in the fall. The problem, if you want to call it that, is that she was accepted into all of them. All eight of them.
Ifeoma White-Thorpe said she was shaking when she got the eighth acceptance letter.
"I was like, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, like this might be eight out of eight and I clicked it and it said 'Congratulations' and I was like oh my goodness!" White-Thorpe told CNN affiliate WABC-TV.
White-Thorpe, a senior and student government president at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, has to choose between Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown.
She wants to study biology and pursue a career in global health. Since all of the Ivy League schools "have great research facilities," she decided to apply to them all.
Students getting into all of the Ivies is a monumental feat, but it's happened to a handful of teens over the past couple of years -- Kwasi Enin in 2014, Harold Ekeh in 2015 and Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna and Kelly Hyles last year.

Is affirmative action playing a role here?

Honest question. if they are being chosen partly based on their race, that is racism. that is like having a bake sale where blacks and mexicans are charged less than whites and asians.
I'd be interested to know their SAT scores.

I never took the SAT, but I've read the scores correspond to IQ.

for many decades the top score was 1600

and not coincidentally the top score for the standard IQ test is 160

shave off a zero and you have an approximate IQ score

I would argue though that the SAT is not exactly an IQ test as you can STUDY for the SAT. i personally remember improving my score by 100-200 points when I was taking those prep courses.

if you can study for it, it's not a valid IQ test in the classical sense. a true IQ test would be like measuring height, it would never change. But alas we also know that IQ is not rigid so people can actually improve their IQ through training. the brain is a muscle and can get smarter over time within a band.

it doesn't mean you can train to become like einstein, but a 10-20% increase in IQ is definitely doable.
They're dying to get Africans into their schools.
