Despite organizing a global movement against gun violence which they themselves billed as a ‘revolution’, some of the survivors of the Parkland school massacre have not been granted admission to their chosen colleges. 

On Tuesday, David Hogg, one of the most vocal survivors of the February 14 atrocity, revealed that he had been rejected from four of the schools he applied to; UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.

Hogg, 17, is not alone. Fellow survivor Ryan Deitsch was turned down by UCLA.

It is not clear what either wants to study. Hogg has a 4.2 GPA and scored a 1270 on his SATs, both of which are considered above average.

He is unfazed by the rejection and still has some options in Florida Atlantic University, California Polytechnic and California State University San Marcos.
