CBS Boston reports the students shouted "THREE-PEAT!" because Little's acceptance marks the third year in a row that a student from Little's school, the T.M. Landry College Preparatory school, got into the Ivy League university.

Anyone who has just been accepted into one of the world's most prestigious universities at the tender age of 16 would have plenty to celebrate.

A 16-year-old Louisiana high school student is going to Harvard, and by the time he gets there many of his classmates will have seen the viral video of him reacting to news of his acceptance.

The TM Landry College Prep senior, surrounded by his classmates and family, went online to check his decision. Little told the publication that his brother passed Standford University, too. "There's only 16 in our graduating class, and me and my brother are two of those 16".

"Harvard has always been my dream school".

Ayrton later said, "I'm happy I got into Harvard but I'm even happier because I've made my mother incredibly proud". A video of that moment was also captured and shared on Little's Twitter page.

"It still haven't been calm since my brother's acceptance Friday, but my brother and I realized that we have done the impossible", Little said.

Little said that he plans to major and math and computer science before working on Wall Street with the aim of opening a nonprofit to help children from a similar background to him get into Ivy League schools.
