Barron is the only child of Donald and Melania Trump and was recently described as ‘sharp, funny, sarcastic and tough’ by a dinner guest at Mar-a-Lago. The dinner was attended by many big names like American entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David, Tom Ellsworth and Vincent Oshana.

Barron Trump allegedly looking to go NYU?

The 18-year-old is set to graduate from his high school with the class of 2024. He is currently attending Oxbridge Academy in Palm Beach, Florida. With his high school ending soon, many people are curious to know which college the ex-president’s son will be attending.

Although there’s no official confirmation on Barron’s choice of college, it is reported that the presumptive Republican nominee’s young son wants to attend New York University (NYU). US Media Daily Beast has claimed that NYU could be ‘at the top of his list.’ The university is just three miles from Trump Tower where he was raised for the first decade of his life before moving to the White House.

As such, Barron - whose graduation made Donald Trump request an absence from court - may be moving back to his hometown.

This comes as a surprise to most people, as Donald Trump shared in an interview with Megyn Kelly that he was looking at Wharton School for Barron. He added:

Barron's very tall, about six-eight. And, he's a good kid. He's a good-looking kid. He's a great student, very good student.

Why is Barron’s alleged choice of college significant?

If Barron Trump - who has always led a lavish life - chooses to go to NYU instead of an Ivy League college, he would be opting for a different path than his four siblings and father. Barron may be the only child of Donald and Melania, but he has 4 step-siblings.

Donald Trump has three kids from ex-wife and the Czech-American model Ivana Trump - Donald Jr,46, Ivanka,42, and Eric, 40. Donald welcomed his daughter Tiffany with Marla Maples in 1993, confirms US Weekly.

All of his other four siblings have followed suit by attending either the same university as their father or one with close ties to him. Donald Trump has attended Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and claimed he graduated ‘first in his class’ from Wharton, reports The US Sun. Ivanka and Donald Jr. also completed their education at Wharton.

Meanwhile, Eric went to the highly prestigious institution of Georgetown where Tiffany also attained her Doctor of Law. Donald has strong connections with both establishments.
