Teenager Applies To 20 Best Colleges In the US And Gets Full Scholarship to All
Micheal Brown, a 17-year-old from Houston, Texas, applied to 20 of the best colleges in the United States and got an acceptance letter from every one of them, CNN reports.
The high school senior did not only get accepted into all of them, he also got offered full scholarships to attend them.
Brown has received only one B in his academic career, and is involved in his school’s debate team, mock trial, and student government.
Although Brown is yet to decide, he has listed his top 8 choices as: Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown and Vanderbilt.
“It’s something I’m proud of because I see my hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off,” he told CNN.
His mother, Berthinia Rutledge-Brown, says she wishes her son would pick Stanford because it’s been his choice ever since, or Harvard because it’ll be a better fit.
When he received his first acceptance in December, he chose to do it at a friend’s house to relieve the pressure of being around his whole family.

“My family had high expectations and maybe didn’t realize how competitive the process is,” he said.
But he still invited his biggest supporter to come along — his mom.
Berthinia Rutledge-Brown filmed as Michael stood in shock by the computer while his friends excitedly rallied around him.
Stanford, of course, said yes.
“After sixth grade, Mike was in control of his education,” recalled the proud mom. “He was focused, he knew what he wanted and he made his own decisions.”
