Kwasi Enin - Into All Ivy League Colleges
The story of Kwasi Enin clearly demonstrates that a compelling story combined with great grades, test scores, and experiences can catapult an applicant to the next level in admissions. While his story has attracted significant national attention, many people can't seem to get over the fact that people with better scores and grades didn't get into the schools Kwasi was able to get into. Some people have injected race into the equation, but the reality is probably that Kwasi painstakingly developed a compelling application persona and executed it to perfection. This is exactly the type of edge that careful application planning can offer students, and the type of edge that InGenius Prep routinely offers its students.
You can read more about Kwasi and his eight Ivy League acceptances in a recent USA Today article. Congratulations, Kwasi, and best of luck at Yale.

I am pursuing a JD at Harvard Law School, where I am a member of Harvard’s Journal on Legislation and Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law. Prior to attending law school, I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with High Honors in History. There, I competed on the Policy Debate team and was the Managing Editor of The Dartmouth Independent. Teaching, mentoring, and coaching have continued to be passions of mine after my time working as a high school debate coach. Throughout college until the present, I have worked with several college and professional school applicants to refine their applications and get into the top choice schools. My favorite part of the job is to watch students grow intellectually and personally throughout the process. I am proud to call many of my advisees lifelong friends. In my free time, I enjoy basketball, soccer, and fitness. My other passion is food, and if there is a Chipotle nearby, you’re likely to find me there at least twice a day. Fortunately, those two hobbies should balance each other out!
