North Dakota Teen Gets Accepted Into All 8 Ivy League Schools


Another brilliant student has joined an exclusive academic club — and now that teen in New Jersey won’t be the only one agonizing over which Ivy League school to choose this fall.

A student in North Dakota has the same decision to make.

Martin Altenburg, a high school senior in Fargo, was also accepted into all eight Ivy League schools.

“I wanted to just apply to as many schools as possible because … I wasn’t sure where I’d get in and where I wouldn’t get in,” Altenburg told CNN affiliate WDAY.

Well, that strategy obviously worked because Altenburg will now choose between Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown.

“Yale was the last letter I opened,” he said. “And I was like, ‘OK, if I get into this, I’ve gotten into all eight Ivy Leagues.’”

But that’s not all. He was also accepted at Stanford and MIT.
