The daughter of President Donald Trump went to the Chapin School in Manhattan until she was 15. She then transferred to Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut.

"It's as ruthless an industry as real estate – the people you meet in that business are just as fricking tough."

The change wasn't simple. Ivanka told Marie Claire at the time:

"I was all of a sudden in the prison of boarding-school life, and all my friends in New York were having fun."

At Choate, Ivanka shared her dorm room with two other young ladies. Her wall is enhanced with string lights, photos of loved ones, and a poster of legendary actress Marilyn Monroe.

There were things about Ivanka that stood out in school, according to a classmate. She had one of the first black, box-shaped Prada bags.

Ivanka made numerous companions. She was considered a regular teenager, but she still seemed to believe she was exceptional. At the time, she had a cellphone and a car on campus, something no other student had.

Her parents, Donald and Ivana Trump, had evidently contended that it was essential for their daughter to have the vehicle.

They pointed out that in addition to being a student, Ivanka likewise had a modeling career. Ivanka signed with Elite Model Management. She once revealed to Marie Claire that she didn't love modeling.

"It's as ruthless an industry as real estate – the people you meet in that business are just as fricking tough," she said.

She transferred to Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, from which she graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in economics in 2004.
