    A Philadelphia charter school has received nearly 9,200 applications for just 96 open slots.

    The lottery to enter the MaST Community Charter School closed Tuesday with 9,190 applications. The K-12 school is known for its award-winning math and science programs.

    The only requirement to win a slot in the school for next year is to be a Philadelphia resident, and a little luck.

    The school is located in the city's Somerton section.

    A second MaST school is located in the city's Lawncrest section. It's only K-3 grade. The lottery for that school is on March 7. Top News Photos: Bei Bei the Giant Panda Turns 4, and MoreTop News Photos: Bei Bei the Giant Panda Turns 4, and More
