A pair of Milwaukee twin sisters identified as Arianna and Arielle Williams got accepted into 38 schools - receiving more than $1,000,000 (N389,480,000) in scholarships.
The twin sisters are graduating seniors at Dr Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy, with Arianna currently ranked the top student in her class and her sister close behind.
Daily Mail reports that the duo are waiting to be officially named valedictorian and salutatorian of their school.
Arianna told WDJT: "This is not really a completion for me, I'm just getting started."
Her sister added: "Yeah, I feel partially relieved."
They have both been accepted into 38 universities but they chose to attend Marquette University in Wisconsin where they will be studying nursing.
Their school administrator, Judith Parker, said: "We couldn't be more proud of their growth, choices and their ability to persevere with joy in the face of obstacles,' the school administrator added.
"They have traveled, organized community service projects, met Michelle Obama and represented our school inside of our walls and throughout our city. We are proud of them and the entire Class of 2020 and excited for the next chapter in their lives as they take this same drive to college."
