It's no longer news that there's going to be another Trump in the nation's capital as of this week, as the president's youngest daughter Tiffany will be coming to study law at Georgetown. While her father may have arrived in Washington as an outsider without any experience, Tiffany Trump's major prepared her well for Georgetown. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a double major in sociology (with a concentration in law) and urban studies.

In deciding to eschew business in favor of law, Tiffany is unique in her family in terms of her course of study; however, they may have influenced her choices of schools to attend. Back in the spring, she joined her father and half siblings Donald Jr. and Ivanka in becoming a Penn graduate, although the other three Trumps are all graduates of Penn's Wharton School, the university's business school. She also won't be the only Trump to get a degree from Georgetown — Eric Trump graduated from Georgetown's business school in 2006, and he's been extremely supportive of his half sister's choice. "I am so proud of Tiffany," Eric told The Daily Mail. "Georgetown University is a truly amazing school and she is going to love her time in Washington, D.C."

While Tiffany hasn't yet announced any details about what she'll specifically be studying at Georgetown, law school could just be her choice of path to get back to working at the Trump organization. Last October, she told George Stephanopoulos in an interview that she saw a potential law degree as a way that she could bring a different area of expertise to the company. "Of course, I'm interested," she said. "I'm applying to law school though so I like to bring — a different kind [of] skill set to the company."

Tiffany is rumored to be very studious, which will certainly serve her well at such a prestigious program. Before she can bring her new skill set to the company, though, her life in Washington will likely be different from what it previously was in New York. She's generally kept out of the spotlight more than her half-siblings have, but being in D.C. could mean that she shows up at more events — even as she works her way through a difficult first year of law school. Her mother, Marla Maples, who completed a bitter divorce with Donald Trump in 1999, will likely spend more time in D.C. with her daughter, as the two are very close. It's also unlikely that she'll be able to avoid the sorts of political protests and commentary that come with the territory of being the child of such an unpopular president. A future classmate at Georgetown, for example, has already written an open letter to Tiffany Trump in Teen Vogue about Tiffany's father's various political stances.

Having grown up as a somewhat public figure, Tiffany is no doubt poised to handle whatever comes her way — just as her Penn major prepared her for her law school curriculum at Georgetown.
