Senior high school student Jordan Nixon was confident that she would enter some schools. But she was shocked by the accumulation of letters of acceptance – she has already been received in 39 colleges and universities.

His high school in Douglasville, Georgia, says that no other student in the school has got as many acceptances. "What's crazy is that I'm still waiting for decision letters, but I did not expect it at all," said Nixon, 17. WGCL, affiliated with CBS Atlanta.

Nixon asked about 50 schools in all, and she did not choose them on a whim. She has specifically sought various schools and has the desired major: international trade.

Even after all these acceptances, she still was not used to seeing the word "Congratulations".

"It's shocking, every time, you're surprised every time you open one," Nixon said.
