​Usually, it's pretty noteworthy if you get into just one of the prestigious Ivy League colleges. But one Long Island teen is an overachiever in more ways than one: He got into all eight.

Seventeen-year-old Kwasi Enin figured he'd apply to each school to boost his chances of getting that elusive acceptance letter. Then the "yeses" started rolling in, and people took notice. (Via New York Daily News)

"Trending this morning is a name that you will want to remember. Everybody want to meet their new boss? OK, he's 17 years old; his name is Kwasi Enin." (Via NBC)

It's no wonder Enin, the son of immigrants from Ghana, is a popular recruit: He sang in the choir, played viola, took 11 Advanced Placement classes and even threw shot put at William Floyd High School in New York. (Via Newsday)

Enin's dad told Newsday that he and his mother "have been encouraging him to be an all-around student. So far, he has proved himself."

No kidding. Enin told the site that he understood the magnitude of the accomplishment and its impact.

“And then quickly afterward, pride and appreciation and thankfulness for everyone who helped you in the whole process."

This news comes just a week after Washington, D.C., teen Avery Coffey got into five Ivy schools himself. (Via WTTG)

But how hard is it to get into those Ivies? The New York Daily News puts the chances of a clean sweep at less than 8 percent.

As for Enin's future, he told the newspaper that he wants to study medicine and music, saying he liked that "a doctor is a community leader, a protector, someone who people turn to ... when they need help."

Oh, and he also got into Binghamton University and Duke. According to USA Today, Enin will pick his school by May 1.
