Boy applies to 20 of the best colleges and got an answer from all of them
His future is definitely looking bright.
As reported by Liftable, Micheal Brown applied to 20 of the best universities in the US and he received full ride scholarships to every single one.
The 17-year-old Texas student has always cared about his grades and has perfect vision when it comes to his future.
Micheal's mother, Berthinia Rutledge-Brown, has always been very supportive. She poured all of her energy into her child.
"After sixth grade, Mike was in control of his education. He was focused, he knew what he wanted and he made his own decisions,” the proud mother recounted.
The Senior at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in Houston has a 4.68-grade point average, an SAT score of 1540 out of 1600, and an ACT score of 34 out of 36.
With his outstanding academic merits, Micheal set his sights high on the top 20 schools in the nation, including Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, University of Pennsylvania, and Georgetown.
In December 2017, he went over to a friend's house together with his mother to check his admission application status. That was the moment he found out that he had been accepted to Stanford University.
Little did he know that after getting his first university acceptance from Stanford, he would go on to get 19 more.
The 20 top-tier colleges didn't just accept him, but also gave him a full scholarship, with an additional $260,000 in other funds.
"He actually earned it. I always knew Mike would get into a good school. I always knew he’d get good scholarship support. But I never imagined this," Berthinia said.
The mother cried because her son was given a chance to get the education he deserves, which she admitted that she could not afford to pay for.
Micheal will make his final choice on May 1. He said that he's very proud of his achievements because he sees his "hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off.”
