David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has been accepted to Harvard University a few months after being mocked for not getting into his preferred colleges.

Hogg, who survived the school shooting in Parkland on Feb. 14 that resulted in the deaths of 17 people, has since become a gun control advocate and was one of the organizers of the March for Our Lives campaign. He announced the news on Twitter Saturday morning.

“Thank you all for the well wishes,” Hogg tweeted. “I’ll be attending Harvard in the fall with a planned major in Political Science.”

In March, Hogg told TMZ that he had been rejected from four California colleges despite his activism. Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked Hogg, describing him as a “Gun Rights Provocateur,” and saying he was whining.

“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” Ingraham tweeted. “(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA . . . totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”

Ingraham later apologized after Hogg accused her of bullying and made a list of companies that advertise on her show, more than a dozen of which pulled their ads.

“The apology . . . was kind of expected, especially after so many of her advertisers dropped out,” Hogg told CNN. “I’m glad to see corporate America standing with me and the other students of Parkland and everybody else. Because when we work together, we can accomplish anything.”
