Ariel Winter, nice work!
The Modern Family Star is heading to college in the Fall, and though she applied to 15 schools in California and on the East Coast to study business or law, she’s keeping it local. Ariel now says she’s formally accepted an offer at… the University of California, Los Angeles!
“It’s an AMAZING DAY! I’m going to UCLA- thank you to everyone who has been there for me on this journey! #bruinsbaby,” the 18-year-old said on Instagram.
Though she’s a successful actress, the girl is smart in that she wants a backup plan.
“You never know if something’s not going to work out, if one day acting is, like, ‘No, we don’t like you anymore!’ You gotta have something else you can do. I’ve always been interested in law, so I think it’ll definitely be something that I’ll love to do and also go to school for,” she told the website in 2015.
By going to school in L.A., the actress will continue to play Alex Dunphy on the hit sitcom that she’s been a part of since she was 11. Dang, that makes me feel OLD.
