Detroit high school senior is accepted to 41 colleges, awarded over $300,000 in scholarships

Michael Love is a senior at Cornerstone Health and Technology in Detroit. He's not sure where he's headed next fall yet, but he’s got a binder full of offers. His success though, comes after a some doubt, struggle, and a lot of hard work.

“I got told a lot when I was younger I couldn’t do this, I couldn’t do that," Love said. "So I just wanted to show people I’m better than what they think I am.”

He applied to more than 50 schools for next year. Not only do most want him — many are offering to foot the bill.

“It’s over $300,000 in scholarship money I have as of right now,” Love said.
