An Omaha North High senior is sorting through his options for college and he has some academic muscle to work with.
Erick Hernandez scored a 35 on the ACT, has a 4.8 grade point average and has been accepted at several colleges including four from the Ivy League.
Erick said, “I've been trying not to let it get to my head. I just think I'm pretty lucky. There’s a lot of people who are smart enough to be admitted to those schools. I think I’m really blessed to have the personality. I wasn’t expecting them to all offer me chance to go to their school. It feels really incredible and I'm humbled by it too.”
Erick says he has narrowed his choices to Harvard and MIT.
