Felicity Huffman's Youngest Daughter Accepted Into College Following College Admissions Scandal!

Felicity Huffman’s youngest daughter is officially going to college — all without the help of a sketchy admissions scammer!

Georgia Macy took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to reveal that she had been accepted into Vassar College in New York, by simply posting the school’s logo with a smiling emoji with hearts. 

On top of the telling Story, the 17-year-old updated her bio to read “Vassar 2024,” so it looks like she’s already set on it! Makes sense, seeing as the school’s first round of early decision applicants are expected to hear if they got in around mid-December.

Vassar is a liberal arts school located in Poughkeepsie, NY, about two hours north of NYC. While the school is known for its drama program (some actress named Meryl Streep studied there), it doesn’t sound like Georgia will be following in her parents’ acting footsteps. 

Earlier this year, the teen’s father William H. Macy told Parade that she was “interested in politics, political science and [is] pursuing that.”

Georgia’s acceptance comes weeks after her mom was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California on October 25, after serving 11 days in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal. As you likely know, the Desperate Housewives star pled guilty to paying college admissions consultant Rick Singer $15,000 to have a proctor improve her eldest daughter Sophia Macy’s SAT scores.

According to docs from the investigation, Huffman considered calling Singer a second time for Georgia, but ultimately decided against it. Prosecutors said neither of Huffman’s daughters were aware of what the actress was orchestrating with Singer.

Following Huffman’s prison release, she started her one year of supervised release — and she’s already begun completing her 250 hours of required community serviceAs for Georgia’s older sister, the 19-year-old is said to be hard at work “with two part-time jobs” and is living in “her own apartment” as she re-applies to colleges for next admissions season. 

Sounds like the family has already put this scandal behind them — but Felicity isn’t forgetting about the women she bonded with behind bars. The 57-year-old star has linked up with an El Lay-based non-proffer called A New Way of Life, which, as we reported, “helps formerly incarcerated women safely re-enter their community, find housing and jobs, and become productive, thriving members of society.”

Keep up the good work, Huffman-Macys!
