Parkland Student David Hogg spoke to TMZ about the difficult times he's been going through. The difficult times he was referring to was college applications.
He told Harvey Levin that he was rejected from UCLA, UCSD and Cal State Long Beach. Although it's been "annoying" for him to deal with that he said he's too busy changing the world to focus on that.
Hogg told Levin he wasn't surprised at all that he wasn't accepted and that it was sad that people have to go into massive amounts of debt just to go to school.
Hogg ended the interview by saying, "We're already changing the world, if colleges want to support us in that, great. If not, doesn't matter we're still gonna change the world."
Hogg reportedly has a GPA of 4.2 and SAT score of 1270.
Although Hogg has an impressive GPA, a little research will tell you UCLA looks at several factors. According to PrepExpert (a test-prep company that offers SAT and ACT Self-Paced Video, Live Online, and In-Person Courses created by Perfect Scorer and Shark Tank winner Dr. Shaan Patel), “With an acceptance rate of 16.1%, admission to UCLA is very competitive. Based on our analysis, to have a good chance of being admitted, you need to be at the very top of your class, and have an SAT score of close to 1500, or an ACT score of around 33.”
