San Francisco: In a remarkable turn of events, 18-year-old Stanley Zhong from Palo Alto, United States, who faced rejection from 16 colleges, including prestigious institutions like MIT, UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, and Caltech, has been hired by tech giant Google as a software engineer. Despite his impressive SAT score of 1590 out of 1600 and his entrepreneurial venture called RabbitSign, Zhong was only accepted by the University of Texas and the University of Maryland. He decided to enroll at the University of Texas but put his plans on hold after receiving a job offer from Google.
Zhong’s story has gained widespread attention, sparking discussions about transparency in college admissions. While college remains a possibility in the future, for now, he is enjoying his new role at Google and the opportunities it presents.
