Texas teen applies to 20 of the best colleges in the US and was accepted to every one with a full scholarship.
Being accepted to the college of your choice is a huge milestone for high school seniors, but one Texas teen didn’t just get to experience that once, but 20 times. Michael Brown applied to 20 of the best universities in the country and was admitted to them all with a full ride.
The 17-year-old from Houston lists his top eight choices as Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown and Vanderbilt. And since Brown has only ever made one B in his academic career, he gets his pick of these top choices.
So where is Michael going to college? The stellar student is going to spend the next month touring schools before making the big decision on May 1. And he’s pretty excited about his accomplishment. "It's something I'm proud of because I see my hard work paying off, determination paying off, sacrifices paying off," Brown explains.
Streaming service posts opening for an “editorial analyst of original content”
Staying home and binge watching your favorite Netflix shows is a common occurrence these days, and while most people do this simply for the joy of it, soon one person will be able to watch all their shows and actually get paid for it.
"Esquire" reports that Netflix recently listed a new job opening for what they call an “editorial analyst of original content,” or basically a professional binge-watcher. Responsibilities of the job are to "watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content."
Now while most people may think they are qualified for the gig, there are some requirements they’d have to meet first. Prospective candidates must be knowledgeable about TV and movies, and have an ability to summarize what they’re watching, plus have plenty of time to watch programming.
So far there’s no word on how much the job pays.
