Like many high school seniors, 17 year-old Malia Obama is currently deciding where she wants to attend college next year. Now, Malia’s top college choices have been revealed, and they indicate what part of the country the famous first daughter will be heading to next year.
According to NBC New York, Malia’s top choices are Barnard College and New York University, which are both in New York City. She is also strongly considering Wesleyan University and Yale in Connecticut, meaning she will likely end up in the northeast.
The rest of her list, however, is spread all over the country. Other schools she is looking at include Tufts, Brown, the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford and the University of California at Berkeley.
The Obama family has stayed relatively quiet about Malia’s college decision, but Michelle has told reporters that her family is discussing it “every night.”
“We are talking about this in my household every night, every night. And there’s really no magic formula,” the first lady said. “It is a very individual decision.”
Michelle has also said Malia wants to be a filmmaker, meaning NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts could be where she ends up. This school boasts legendary alumni like Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee, and it could be the perfect place for Malia to develop her skills behind the camera.
Regardless of where she ends up, we’re sure Malia can’t wait to get as far away from her horrid parents as she can…
