– A New Jersey honor student who had sued her parents for financial support has chosen a college.

The Daily Record of Parsippany says Rachel Canning announced on Facebook that she plans to attend Western New England University as a biomedical engineering major and has won a $56,000 scholarship.

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.
