(NBC News) – A Minnesota teen has achieved the rare and prestigious honor of being accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.
Munira Khalif, a senior at Mounds Park Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota, told NBC affiliate KARE that she was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools — plus several other prestigious universities.
“I’m humbled to even be able to have these choices because I know that that’s not the case for everyone,” she said.
The eight Ivy League Schools are Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania. Khalif was also accepted to Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Minnesota.
