Felicity Huffman Macy‘s daughter is getting a second chance at going to college!
As you’ll recall, the Desperate Housewives alum was one of many parents involved in the College Admissions Scandal, in which she was accused of paying $15,000 to enhance her daughter’s SAT scores. The 57-year-old pleaded guilty to fraud charges in May 2019 and served 10 days out of her 14-day prison sentence in October.
Since then, things have been on the quiet side, but now it’s been revealed Sophia Macy is going to college without any assistance from her mom after reportedly retaking the test.
On Sunday, the 19-year-old aspiring actress announced via Instagram Stories she would be attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this fall, also adding “CMU Drama ’24” to her bio on the platform.
A Page Six source close to the family shared:
“Felicity is so proud and grateful that Sophia has kept her chin up over the last year. It was a painful, challenging time and she pulled through it with strength and grace.”
Per the school’s website, the School of Drama has a 3% acceptance rate and the average SAT score for the College of Fine Arts is between 1340-1530.
In a statement before she entered her guilty plea last year, Huffman said:
“My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.”
“I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.”
Felicity and William H. Macy are also parents to 18-year-old Georgia, who will attend Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York this fall. Per court docs, the actress allegedly “made arrangements to pursue the scheme for a second time” for her younger daughter, but ultimately chose “not to do so.”
