High school senior Jordan Nixon was confident she would get into a few schools. But she was shocked as the acceptance letters piled up — she's gotten in to 39 colleges and universities so far.


Her high school in Douglasville, Georgia, said no other student at the school has ever gotten this many acceptances. "The crazy thing is, I'm still waiting on decision letters, but I was not expecting that at all," 17-year-old Nixon told CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL-TV.


Nixon applied to about 50 schools all together, and she didn't just choose them on a whim. She specifically researched schools that are diverse and have her desired major: International Business.
