Twin brothers from Ann Arbor have an amazingly, awesome, difficult decision to make. Between the two of them they received twenty acceptance letters from Ivy League and other top colleges.

The acceptance letters came almost all at once. The postal carrier took notice, offering their mom congratulations as he made the delivery.

“He said 'you must be so proud', and as I closed the door I just started crying,” said Tory Williams. “I feel a lot of pride.  They worked hard.”

Jadal Williams is accepted to all eight Ivy League schools - and then some.  His twin brother Taimor got into U of M, Dartmouth, Cornell, Duke, MIT and Berkeley.

“I just have to say, it is such a blessing,” said Taimor.

So how did they accomplish this? They say being twins helped.

“Being twins helped a lot because we took a lot of the same classes and can help each other out,” said Jadal.

The seniors at Huron High School in Ann Arbor say their mom and dad taught them to see academics as fun, but they say getting into college isn’t all about academics. Both are in sports. Both are dedicated to community service.

“Believe in yourself and that anyone can save the world,” said Jadal.

Both plan to become engineers and solve problems.  For now their problem is deciding which amazing opportunity to take.

The deadline at some schools for a decision is May 1.
