Props to New Orleans high school senior Darrin Francois! The young man got accepted to 83 colleges! Several other students at the International High School of New Orleans got over 20 acceptance letters and secured significant scholarship funds. But Darrin definitely scored big.
In addition to being accepted to 83 schools, Francois has over three million dollars in scholarships offers. The student said, "I just applied, applied, applied. I didn't know how many it was, so once they started to come through the mail, I was like oh my gosh, this many? Then, they started coming more and more.”
Of course, the family is proud. Darrin’s mom said she was happy to see her son“go forward into his success and go forward into his goals.”
So what college he will choose? Darrin said that while he’s considering several law schools, he’ll probably go with the scholarship has the most financial coverage. Smart move!
