A high school senior in New Orleans, Antoinette Love, has been accepted into 115 colleges and gotten more than $3.7 million (N1.3b) in scholarship money.
Love recounted to CNN how she kept applying to different colleges just to see how many she could get into.
"At first I didn't think I was going to get this many, but then they just kept coming and I was like, 'Oh my gosh,'" Love who has a 3.7 GPA told CNN.
Love who works part time by selling ties, cuff links and socks is also involved in other extra curricular organizations at the International High School of New Orleans. She said although she had been thinking about a couple of universities, she had no idea the exact school she wants to attend. She however will make up her mind by May 1 after checking a few of them out.
Love who wants to be a teacher likes painting and taking photos.
For high school students who are applying to colleges soon, Love advises them to apply through the Common Application as well as the Common Black Application. She also suggests seeking fee waivers and submitting applications to schools that don't charge a fee.
