College for iCarley
MIRANDA Cosgrove, the star of iCarly and one of the highest paid child actresses on television, told talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres she would forgo showbiz success in exchange for a college degree.
‘‘ I just sent all my college applications in so I’m waiting to see what happens. I’m in 12th grade but I’ll find out in the next few weeks,’’ Cosgrove, 17, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an interview.
Cosgrove applied to New York University ( NYU) and the University of Southern California ( USC) and said she understood pursuing an advanced degree might move her away from the Hollywood set of her hit show, which is in its fourth season.
