I Am Jazz – Jazz Jennings Accepts Harvard Offer

Earlier this year, Jazz Jennings took to Instagram to announce that she will be a student at Harvard this fall. Jazz was shocked to get accepted to an institution that has such a small acceptance rate. Though, she is very grateful for the opportunity. To reveal that she is going to be a Harvard student, the I Am Jazz reality lead took a picture of herself wearing a Harvard sweater and put it online to announce the good news.

The Florida native, Jazz Jennings, had more than one choice when it came to picking a post-secondary school. She had a choice between two different colleges. Both colleges have a very good reputation. Which surely made picking between the two hard. She explained that her choice to accept the offer to Harvard is all documented in the new season of I Am Jazz. Though, no release date for season six has been announced.
