Akintunde Ahmad is just an ordinary guy. Well, this according to him at least.
But one thing that makes this supposedly ordinary guy stand out is his extraordinary brain; a real stunner to everyone that knows about his 5.0 GPA and 2100 SAT score.
As you can imagine, he’ll have no problem getting into just about any prestigious university he wants.
And yes, they have let him know that.
“Like, my whole life, people have been telling me to stay on this path and everything will fall, the cards will fall like you want them to,” Akintunde told KGO-TV, proudly tipping a hat to the Oakland public school system.
Akintunde, who says he is often judged by his appearance, carry’s pictures documenting his remarkable academic achievements on his smartphone. Not so much for bragging rights, but few believe that the teenager, who sports long dreadlocks, has actually reached such lofty heights.
Appearance hasn’t stopped schools like Yale, Brown, Columbia, Northwestern, the University of Southern California, UCLA, Howard, Chapman and more from courting the teenager, who also plays three instruments and is a great baseball player. According to KGO-TV, Yale is talking to him about possibly joining its baseball team.
Akintunde has his heart set on either Yale or Brown and is interested in pursuing premed or prelaw.
