Bulgaria: Bulgarian Admitted to All US Ivy League Universities Photos: The Star

A Bulgarian student has been admitted to 18 top US universities, with 8 of them are Ivy League institutions - among the most prestigious schools in the world.

Stefan Stoykov made the news across the ocean with his remarkable accomplishment in a story published by INDYStar.

The 18-year old boy has been living in Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, for ten years now, after his parents emigrated to the US. Initially, he didn't know any English, but nonetheless he managed to catch up to his peers and this year scored a maximum 2,400 points on the SAT exams.


After he sent out his college applications, Stefan got acceptance  from all the most prestigious universities in the US- Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Cornell, Columbia University in New York, Pennsylvania, as well as Dortmund. What is more, all of them offered him scholarships on account of his excellent scores.

''I hoped to get into one of them," he said. "Now I have the chance to study at all of them."

As it turns out, his mother, who is currently working as a maid, has urged him to apply despite the high tuition fees. Stefan said that he is now willing to repay her and even helps her at work.

That a boy - 11 Apr 2015 // 02:31:22

Just today, it was published that a lot of people living in Puerto Rico, USA, get disability payments from the Social security Adminitstration because they don't speak English well.
So, maybe the US Congress should look into this abuse of US taxpayers...
