Florida student admitted into 27 colleges with over $4 million in scholarships

18 year old student Jonathan Walker, who attends high school in Panama City, in Florida is being accepted into 27 colleges offering him a collective $4 million in scholarship money. Some of the options are Harvard, Stanford, and MIT.

“It’s so crazy to think about that I applied to all these colleges, and I got in,” said Walker. “That’s such a rare thing to occur, but the fact that it did happen, I’m so excited about it.”

“I’ve really been trying to like soak it in,” he said.

Walker plays on the school's football team and has created inventions that aid the deaf and blind. His advice for students is simply, “Keep grinding no matter what.”

Jonathan says he has not made his final decision yet on which college he will attend.
