The boy said he applied to many universities because he did not know which one would accept him. Some of the universities offering him admission include California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Stanford, and several Ivy League universities such as Princeton, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Brown and Dartmouth.
Reacting, Pritvik said:
“I applied to all these universities because my parents were unsure where I’ll get in. Caltech has always been my dream school, as it is a STEM research hub. However, I never expected to get in as it’s extremely selective and admits only around 25 to 50 international students from all over the world. Most of my family members and friends told me that it would be a waste of time if I applied to Caltech. However, I applied and got in!"
