The video, which shows Little screaming and his classmates erupting in cheers upon news of his acceptance, had been viewed more than 5 million times on Twitter by Thursday morning.

In the video, the students chant “three-peat,” a reference to the number of consecutive times the school has had a student accepted to Harvard, KATC reported.

Little isn’t the only member of his family who was recently accepted to an elite university. Earlier this month, his older brother, Alex Little, was accepted to Stanford University, according to the report.
