Student accepted into 49 colleges and has over $1,000,000 in scholarship offers | Aharon

A Georgia high school student was accepted into 49 colleges and received more than $1,000,000 in scholarship offers.

McKenzie Thompson, 18, told CNN in an interview that she did not plan to apply to more than 50 colleges, but after attending countless college fairs and receiving financial aid, she ended up applying to 51 colleges.

“It was a very, very good experience, just to see all your hard work pay off and to see that build up in a file,” he said.

In addition, he noted that his family is excited about everything that happened to him.

“Having 49 admissions and over $1.3 million, it’s kind of like ‘Wow, you’re getting things done,'” he said.

Thompson is rated as an outstanding student in her high school and this is due to the way she allocates time to complete her homework.

“Without time management, or knowing how to multitask, I wouldn’t have been able to do anything,” he said.

The 18-year-old serves as class president at West Lake High School in Atlanta, co-leader of the Blue Rain Dance Troupe, vice president of the Beta Club community service group and a member of the National Honor Society.

On the other hand, school authorities acknowledge Thompson’s performance and Ann Humpson Powright, Director of Media Relations for Fulton County Schools, confirmed student admission to all 49 universities and $1,300,000 in scholarship offers.

MacKenzie aspires to become a veterinarian because she loves animals, and has chosen to pursue her dream at Tuskegee University in Alabama, where she will begin her career in zoology.

“I am excited about a new environment, a new beginning, new people,” she concluded.
