Transcript for Young Woman Gets Accepted to All 8 Ivy League Schools
Decisions, decisions. One lucky not to mention exceptionally smart high school senior hit the ivy league jackpot and, as John donvan reports, she's not the first from her school to get the star treatment. Reporter: Augusta uwamansu-nna aimed high when she applied for college this year. I knew that I wanted to go somewhere where I would learn a lot and where I would challenge myself academically. Reporter: And so, she tried for the ivy league -- those eight storied schools which typically let in fewer than 15% of those who apply. Now, everyone knows Augusta's a star in class and she's an athlete. She plays badminton, and a leader, in fact part of future leaders of America, she put in the hours. There's quite often nights when I'm here till 6:00, 7:00 at night doing my work in my office and Augusta is at her locker, putting her books away and gathering her things to go home. Reporter: Well, this week, on a single afternoon, she heard from all eight of the ivy league schools she applied to. So I took out my phone and I started looking at each school. Reporter: And yes, you guessed it -- I went through each school and I came to the last one and I just yelled and started screaming. Reporter: Augusta went 8 for 8. And no, she hasn't made a decision yet. Remarkably, this is the second year in a row a student from elmont memorial high school has made a sweep. That sets an example for the kids. You see the kids, they see Augusta walk by now, the younger student are like, that's Augusta, that's Augusta." Reporter: Yes, it is. John donvan, ABC news, Washington.
