Michael Brown, who is currently a senior at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School, also got $260,000 in additional scholarship offers.

“It’s something I’m proud of because I see my hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off” he said in an interview with CNN.

The smart student who has been heavily involved in his school’s debate team, mock trial and student government for years, listed his top eight universities choices as: Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown and Vanderbilt.

Michael who is set on majoring in political science, but also considering a second degree in economics, disclosed that he volunteered for political campaigns, citing his interest to “the moment I saw Barack Obama get elected.”

When he received his first acceptance in December, he chose to do it at a friend’s house to relieve the pressure of being around his whole family.

“My family had high expectations and maybe didn’t realize how competitive the process is,” he said.
But he still invited his biggest supporter to come along — his mom. Berthinia Rutledge-Brown filmed as Micheal stood in shock by the computer, while his friends excitedly rallied around him. ‘Stanford, of course said yes’, he said.
“After sixth grade, Mike was in control of his education,” recalled the proud mom. “He was focused, he knew what he wanted and he made his own decisions.”
Rutledge-Brown lost three babies before becoming pregnant with Micheal. Once she finally had a son, she poured all of her energy into giving him the very best that she possibly could. He only received one B during his entire academic career, which she said was very difficult for the goal-getter. On March 28, Micheal opened the last four admissions decisions that would mark his 20-school streak.
