David Hogg, one of the most famous gun control advocates in the country, is having a tough time getting into the colleges and universities he wants. Hogg is fresh off the success of the March For Our Lives rally in Washington DC.
The March For Our Lives gathered hundreds of thousands of gun control advocates for a dramatic rally featuring celebrities and student activists, including David Hogg.
Hogg, a Parkland High School student, became the poster boy for the gun control movement after his school was attacked by a deranged gunman who killed 17.
Hogg tells TMZ that he received rejection letters two weeks ago from four University of California campuses that he applied to — UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine. Hogg says he has a 4.2 GPA and an SAT score of 1270.
Hogg was clearly disappointed, telling TMZ, “It’s been kinda annoying… but we’re changing the world – right now it’s too hard to focus on that.” Hogg says he does not know where he is going but he was accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly, Cal State San Marcos.
“We’re still going to change the world,” Hogg says.
