Being accepted to the college of your choice is a huge milestone for high school seniors, but one Texas teen didn’t just get to experience that once, but 20 times. Michael Brown applied to 20 of the best universities in the country and was admitted to them all with a full ride.
The 17-year-old from Houston lists his top eight choices as Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown and Vanderbilt. And since Brown has only ever made one B in his academic career, he gets his pick of these top choices.
So where is Michael going to college? The stellar student is going to spend the next month touring schools before making the big decision on May 1. And he’s pretty excited about his accomplishment. "It's something I'm proud of because I see my hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off," Brown explains.
