    A university spokeswoman told the newspaper Tuesday that Canning was accepted into the private school in Massachusetts, but school officials would not comment Wednesday to The Associated Press or say if Canning's getting a scholarship.

    Canning had claimed her parents threw her out when she turned 18. But they claimed she voluntarily left their Lincoln Park home in October because she didn't want to abide by their household rules.

    She dropped her suit last month and returned home.
