After being accepted to all eight Ivy League universities, Ronald Nelson decided on somewhere less flashy and more practical.

Ronald Nelson is a high school senior from Germantown, Tennessee. He is class president, has near-perfect standardized test scores, is a National Merit Scholar, and performs saxophone at the state level. So it's not that surprising that he's racking up the acceptance letters. In fact, he was one of the very few people this year accepted to all eight Ivy League universities, not to mention other top schools like Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and NYU. What is surprising is the decision he made: he's going to The University of Alabama. Roll Tide.
