This Gets You Into Eight Ivy League Schools: “I’m Black and I Love Music”
Getting accepted into an Ivy League university is very, very difficult even if you are at the top of your high school graduating class. But not, apparently, if you’re Black and even minimally competent.

WANT A free laugh? Meet Kwasi Enin, a young male Black who, at age 17 (in 2014), wrote a one-page-plus-two-widow-lines essay wherein he says he likes music and that he knows a lot about music, and this proves how smart he is. Oh, and his SAT score is 2250. I’d thought the maximum score was 1600. I guess he earned extra credit. Anyway, there’s a school of thought that holds that it was Kwasi’s essay that got him accepted by all eight Ivy League universities.
Read the essay below. Do you still think that it was the essay that got him accepted?
