The eldest Obama daughter will take a year off after she graduates high school before heading to the Ivy League college. She's following in the footsteps of her parents, both of whom went to Harvard Law School.

Malia Obama's search for the right school has attracted a great deal of attention, though she somewhat gave the game away recently when she wore a Harvard shirt at her school's college day. There was no word on what she would do during her gap year.
