Hogg has been outspoken since a gunman opened fire at his high school earlier this year. Some on the right have criticized his activism — including Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham, who mocked him for the college rejections.

He noted in his announcement that he plans to study political science at Harvard. The Parkland survivor has previously indicated his interest in running for Congress when he is old enough.
