Meet the Teen Who's Been Accepted to 39 Colleges

March 8, 2019

The average high school senior applies to 7-10 different colleges, hoping that they'll get accepted to at least a few of them. But 17 year-old Jordan Nixon from Georgia is far from your average high school student. She applied to 50 schools and has been accepted by 39 of them, all while racking up $1.6M in scholarship money. A spokesperson at Douglas County High School, where Nixon attends, said this is the most acceptance letters a student there has ever received. Jordyn said she's still narrowing down her choices, but will make a decision by May 1.
