Explaining to a Twitter user how she did it, Margareté wrote: "I started with my LLM in uppsala university, Sweden which is 4,5 years. Then on my third year, I got a scholarship to Penn State and studied 1 year whilst doing my Swedish from a distance (the thesis and special courses)."
In other news, 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.

"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."
