It looks like Bridget Mendler is working on trading in her Disney Channel wand for a gavel.

That’s right, OG Disney stans! The Good Luck Charlie actress is going to Harvard Law School. How do we know? Social media, of course! The 26-year-old took to her Instagram Stories to share the exciting news with her followers, and if you’re wondering when she starts this exciting new venture, it seems she already has.

Along with a snapshot of her course materials packet, the “Ready or Not” singer wrote, “Bring it 2019!” Sounds to us like someone’s ready to crush it at one of the most prestigious law schools in the nation.

While Harvard is bound to be a whole new challenge for the Wizards of Waverly Place actress, this definitely isn’t her first time doing the whole college thing. In May 2018, she announced she was starting a graduate program at MIT, which focused on social media.

“Hey guys 🙂 hope you are having a good day wherever you are,” Bridgit said. “Wanted to say i’m gonna be starting a graduate program at MIT which means I’m gonna be juggling a couple things for a little while.”

Still, she promised fans that she would continue releasing music, but less frequently since she’d be focusing on school.

She said, “I will continue to put our music because it is a part of me and I also want to continue to connect with my fans in that way. It will likely be at a slower pace but know that I am working on it! I will keep you up to date on releases and stuff.”

Now that the former Disney Channel star is at Harvard studying law, we think it’s probably going to be fairly difficult for her to release new music anytime soon. Don’t worry, though — her singles from 2017, such as “Diving” and “Temperamental Love” are still some of our faves, so we’ll just listen to those on repeat until she walks across that stage and accepts that diploma. Congrats, girl!
