In the case of Moses Gebregziabher, acceptances are pouring in, notably from MIT, Harvard, Dartmouth, Tufts, and Boston University. This achievement is the culmination of a rigorous application process that involves extensive research, personal essays, and interviews.

Alongside his academic pursuits, Gebregziabher has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to various extracurricular activities. He has served as an Altar Server each week for his local church, played a pivotal role in PCSS’s National Honor Society as an Outreach Coordinator, volunteered to help prepare a middle school for post-COVID classes, and acted as a peer mentor for PCSS first-year students. He also interned at the Cambridge Health Alliance, gaining invaluable experience in the mental health field.

In addition to his impressive Ivy League acceptances, Gebregziabher has also received acceptance letters from a diverse range of institutions, including Boston College, Tufts University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Wentworth, UMass Amherst & Boston, Stonehill College, and Merrimack College.
