After being put “on hold” from the University of Southern California, Olivia Jade Giannulli wants to head back to school.
The social media influencer was never officially kicked out from the school and has been in limbo since the college admissions scandal started where it was revealed that her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, reportedly paid $500,000 to have their two daughters get into USC as part of the crew team when neither had ever participated in the sport.
“Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC,” a source told Us. “She didn’t get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in.”
Another insider added, “She knows they won’t let her in, so she’s hoping this info gets out. She wants to come out looking like she’s changed, learned life lessons and is growing as a person, so she for sure wants people to think she is interested in her education.”
“USC has placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme,” the college said in a statement at the time of the hold. “This prevents the students from registering for classes (until they have agreed to participate in the review of their case), withdrawing from the university, or acquiring transcripts while their cases are under review.”
Both her parents have pleaded not guilty to charges but could face up to 40 years in prison if convicted. Although many experts believe that lengthy of a sentence is unlikely.
