A Dubai College science student, who recently survived a life-threatening kidney transplant, has received acceptance offers from 23 prestigious universities in the UK and US.
A young researcher and author, 17-year-old Pritvik Sinhadc is now going to choose between his three top picks, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Stanford, and Princeton, commenting: “I applied to all these universities because my parents were unsure where I’d get in.”
He goes on to explain: “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. 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!”
