She's officially part of Harvard's class of 2021, even though she's set to take a year off first. Deets on YBF Teen Malia Obama's college plans...
After Harvard University's online student publication The Tab posted a pic of Malia Obama posing in a Harvard 2020 tee on College Signing Day (the campaign her mother Michelle Obama started around the country), it seemed the Sidwell Friends senior had made her college decision.
Today, the Office of the First Lady confirmed she will indeed be a Harvard Pilgrim saying:
“The President and Mrs Obama announced today that their daughter Malia will attend Harvard University in the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021. Malia will take a gap year before beginning school.”
Malia looked at plenty of schools in addition to her mom and dad's law school alma mater -- her mom's alma mater Princeton, Brown, NYU and more. After the above pic turned up on the Facebook page of a student who is part of the admitted Harvard students Facebook page, her decision seemed clear.
The fab teen received the class of 2020 tee, but will instead be part of the class of 2021.
President Obama said at the White House Correspondent's Dinner last night that he and Mrs. O will be staying in D.C. until younger daughter Sasha graduates high school.
