“I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to. So that’s really exciting,” the 17-year-old actress revealed to Seventeen magazine. “I found all of that out last week. My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month.”

Shahidi’s college recommendation letter was written by Michelle Obama, but she’s not the only student making headlines for their college acceptance story.

A muslim high school student in New Jersey was recently accepted into Stanford University after writing “Black Lives Matter” 100 times on his college application, a Chicago high schooler was accepted into 23 historically black colleges along with racking up more than a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships, and a group of Ohio quadruplets earned acceptance letters from Yale and Harvard.
