New Orleans high school student Darrin Francois received acceptances to over 80 colleges and the congratulatory letters just keep coming.

“I just applied, applied, applied. I didn’t know how many it was, so once they started to come through the mail, I was like oh my gosh, this many? Then, they started coming more and more. Now, today, I have 83 now.”
