This 17-year-old senior at Morris Hills High School in Rockaway, New Jersey has a big decision ahead of her. Her choices are between: Harvard, Cornell, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown and the University of Pennsylvania.
“I got into Harvard early action, so I figured I’ll just go there, so then I got into all others, and I was like, ‘Wait, now I don’t know where I want to go,” White -Thorpe said.
She believes her “love for poetry and writing just really stood out” in her college applications. Also, she is doing very well in her Advanced Placement courses while maintaining the position as student government president at her high school. However, the colleges haven’t offered her much financial support yet.
“At this point, none of the schools I’ve applied to said they’d give merit scholarships, so I’m praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money,” she said. “Shout out to all of those schools. Please give me something.”
White -Thorpe plans to major in biology and later pursue a career in global health, “So many of (the Ivy League schools) have great research facilities, so I was like, ‘I might as well just shoot my shot and apply,” she said.
