High-school student gets offers from 113 colleges, scholarships worth $4.5 mn

Here’s a lesson for studious high-schoolers everywhere: hard work pays off, and how! Just ask Jasmine Harrison, 17, who is all set to graduate from her high school in Greensboro, North Carolina with a perfect GPA of 4.0.

She is not worried about her future at all, showered as she is with a number of admission offers and merit-based scholarships.

Harrison has been accepted into an incredible 113 colleges and awarded $4.5 million in scholarships.

“At first I could not believe it, but then I was like, ‘Wow.’ I felt honoured,” Harrison was quoted as saying by a news agency.

She has decided to pursue higher studies at Bennett College, a historically black liberal arts college for women in her home city of Greensboro, that offered her a full ride with a major in biology.

“It was overwhelming at first because there were so many options,” she said, adding, “I could go anywhere, and discover who I am.”

Bennett College awarded Harrison a full scholarship to cover the $28,000 annual cost, the school said in a tweet.

It all started with a scholarship search and college applications in September with her mother.

“On those late nights when I was filling out those applications with my mom and we just felt like we cannot do this, we just ended up singing gospel songs together to get through the night,” she said.

Once those scholarship applications started clicking and the acceptances and financial aid awards started to pour in, she got more confident and decided to apply to more colleges.

“I felt if I can get into all of these, where else can I get in?” she said.

Harrison, who aims to become a neonatal intensive care unit nurse, had applied to all 115 universities and except for two universities — the University of South Carolina and Seton Hall University – she got admission letters from all the other universities.
