U.S. & World

When it comes to going to college, a North Carolina teen has some options, 113 of them to be precise.

Jasmine Harrison, 17, was accepted to 113 colleges and universities and awarded more than $4.5 million in merit scholarships, WFMY reported.

Harrison is on track to graduate from high school with a 4.0 GPA.

Of the 113 schools that accepted her, she was offered full-ride scholarships to three, Ed Waters College, Mississippi Valley State University and Bennett College, all historically black universities.

“When I got the first couple in the mail, I was like, ‘Okay, this is really happening.’ I didn’t really think I’d be able to do that,” Harrison said.

Harrison plans to enroll at Bennett College and pursue a major in biology. She tells WFMY she wants to become a NICU nurse.
