Well, one New Orleans high school senior certainly is familiar with this particular sort of bliss — 83 times, to be specific. Darrin Francois, a student at the International High School of New Orleans, received 83 college acceptance letters and an astounding $3,000,000+ in scholarships.

"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 more and more. Now, today, I have 83 now," says Francois in a news segment on CNN. Happily, Francois is in good company with several of his classmates enjoying acceptance letters from at least 20 schools a piece, along with sizable scholarships.

Congratulations to Francois and all of his classmates on their remarkable achievements. We certainly think this calls for a Friday afternoon beignets break.
