Normandie Cormier, the senior at Early College Academy accepted into over 100 colleges, has announced where she’ll attend college in the fall.

Cormier made headlines last month after receiving over 139 college acceptance letters. Five of those letters were from medical schools. She was also offered 17 full-rides and $8.7 million in scholarships.

In a video posted to her Facebook page, Cormier announced that she would be attending Xavier University in New Orleans this fall.

The 18-year-old made the announcement surrounded by her family. See that video below:

Cormier told KATC that she hopes to become a surgeon and apply her skills worldwide. The 18-year-old also has an interest in politics and sees herself possibly running for office one day.

KATC’s Jordan Lippincott spoke with Cormier in April. See that interview below.
