One of the most important moments in people’s lives is choosing whether they will study in a university after graduating from school or not.


David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland high school shooting, is struggling with it. After the incident, he became a voice for a global gun control movement and has been trying to get into a college in California.

NY Post reported that most of the universities he has tried to get in are not impressed by him as he has been rejected by four so far: UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine. One of the most interesting facts about it is that he meets the requirements.

The UC website revealed that a minimum 3.4 GPA is needed for non-California residents to get in. Hogg has a 4.2 and a SAT score of 1270, which is way higher than the university demands.

After confessing that he has been accepted to Cal. State San Marcos and Cal. Poly, as well as in Florida Atlantic University, he said he is not sure about his future just yet.


‘I’m probably going to take a gap year and I’m sure I’ll eventually find the right place for me. Right now, I’m more focused on changing the world and the future of America.’

David Hogg, NY Post, March 28, 2018.

He added that he was changing the world already and that, despite the fact he would like colleges to join him, it really doesn’t matter if they don’t.

Hogg is not the only Florida high school shooting survivor who has been rejected from universities in California. He admitted that fellow student and activist Ryan Deitsch, and Emma Gonzalez suffered the same.

Gonzalez chose to go to the liberal arts school New College of Florida while Deitsch has nothing clear yet. Both of them are very likely to take a break and wait for the right opportunity to come up.
