High school student, son of Mexican immigrants, accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools

FULLERTON, Calif. -- A Fullerton Union High School senior has been accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.

Along with the Ivy League schools, Fernando Rojas also got into Stanford, UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton.

The principal of Fullerton Union High School notified ABC7 about Rojas' success using #ABC7Eyewitness.

The graduating senior is the son of immigrants from Mexico.

"It's a blessing, honestly, and like I've been given a lot of support from my family from my teachers and stuff," Rojas said. "They're reassuring me, 'Wherever you're going to end up, you're going to end up in good hands.'"

Rojas says he hasn't made a decision yet, but has narrowed down his list of colleges to Harvard and Yale. He plans to study international law in college.
