David Hogg says he is “changing the world” and while he does, at least four California colleges have rejected his application for admission.

TMZ reports that Hogg was rejected by “UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.”

The Mercury News echoes the report and notes that Hogg is “one of the outspoken students who survived the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.” They explain that helped found the March for Our Lives movement and helped organization Saturday’s student march for gun control.

The News observes, “You might think that would impress college admissions committees.” But Hogg got rejected.

IJR reports that Hogg says the rejections do not surprise him because “amazing people don’t get into college.”

He also made the point that he simply does not have time to worry about whether he is accepted or rejected. He said, “You know, we’re changing the world. Right now, it’s too hard to focus on that.”
