18-year-old boy gains admission to 27 US universities, wins $4m scholarship to become an Engineer
Jonathan Walker, an extraordinary 18-year-old from Panama City, Florida, who graduated from high school with a 4.85 GPA, was accepted into 27 different US universities.
Also, Jonathan Walker received a total of $4 million in scholarships from universities like MIT, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and Johns Hopkins.
“It’s so crazy to think about that I applied to all these colleges and I got in. That’s such a rare thing to occur, but the fact that it did happen, I’m so excited about it,” Jonathan Walker said.
As he prepares to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, the 18-year-old, who attended Rutherford High School in Florida, wishes to encourage other Black teenagers to pursue their aspirations of becoming inventors. He mentioned to GMA that his parent’s gift of a chemistry kit sparked his interest in science.
“I found a way to channel that curiosity into Science and that soon blossomed into Engineering,” he explained.
Jonathan Walker hasn’t decided which of the 27 universities he’ll attend. He must make the difficult decision of attending one of the Ivy League schools, such as Yale, Stanford, or the University of Pennsylvania.
