According to In The Know, she was cleaning out her closet of all her unopened college acceptance letters when she made a gut-wrenching discovery: a $104,000 scholarship offer to Maryville College, one of her top three school choices. However, not wanting to incur debt from a large university, @luvlyymadiii had already chosen to attend a community college and had attended their acceptance ceremony, and the deadline to accept Maryville’s offer was one day away.

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending, as Madi revealed that Maryville tracked her down via social media and said they would send her an award letter, which basically means that she will be going to the college of her choice with funding.
