Strategy: Where America's 'first kids' went to college

Tiffany Trump is heading to Georgetown Law.

Malia Obama is taking a year off before attending Harvard. Here's where other "first kids" went.

Around the US, students are gearing up to head back to school.

"First kid" Tiffany Trump, President Trump's youngest daughter, is set to start her first year at Georgetown Law School.

And former "first kid" Malia Obama, after taking a gap year, is about to start classes at Harvard.

With that in mind, we looked at the college choices of first kids who were teenagers or young adults when their parents lived in the White House, as far back as President John F. Kennedy.

Along with Tiffany Trump, we added Trump's other children — the other current first kids — to this list.

Take a look below to see where everyone went — as well as who dropped out of college, who failed the bar exam, and whose parents didn't go to their graduation.

The oldest daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson, Lynda Bird Johnson Robb attended the all-girls National Cathedral School in Washington, DC, and the University of Texas at Austin for college.
