David Hogg, the millennial who is trying to ban your second amendment right, revealed during an interview that four universities he wished to attend denied his application.
The high school senior, who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, said UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and UC Irvine have all rejected him.
He isn’t the only survivor/activist that has been rejected. Ryan Deitsch has also been denied entry to UCLA.
“It’s not been too great for me and some of the other members of the movement, like Ryan Deitsch,” Hogg said according to TMZ.
“It’s been kind of annoying having to deal with that and everything else that’s been going on but at this point, you know, we’re changing the world. We’re too busy. Right now it’s hard to focus on that,” he said.
The rejection letters came two weeks ago.
“I am not surprised at all in all honesty. I think there’s a lot of amazing people that don’t get to college, not only that do things like I do but because their voices just aren’t heard in the tsunami of people that apply every year to colleges in such an economic impacted school system here which we have here in America where people have to go into massive amounts of debt just to go to college and get an education,” he said.
“I think it’s really sad but it’s the truth.”
Hogg, who has a 4.2 grade point average, said he was accepted to Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly and Cal State San Marcos.
“If colleges want to support us in that, great, if they don’t it doesn’t matter, we’re still going to change the world,” he said.
