Laurie Hernandez's latest TikTok deserves a perfect score!

On March 30, the gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast, 21, posted a video of the heart-stopping moment when she discovered that she'd been accepted into New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts.

"OK, here we go," Hernandez says at the beginning of the clip. The athlete can be seen anxiously staring at her computer screen with her girlfriend, fellow gymnast Charlotte Drury, at her side.

While Hernandez nervously laughs ahead of the big reveal, Drury sweetly comforts her by saying, "No matter what happens, I'm so, so proud of you."

As the couple learns the good news, Drury leaps into the air, shouting, "You got in!" An overjoyed Hernandez raises two celebratory fists into the air.

They might've even gotten a little bit too excited. As Hernandez reaches out for Drury, the camera falls over. When it is righted, both gymnasts can be seen laughing hysterically as Hernandez asks, "Are you OK?"

Drury nods in response.

"LETS GOOO," Hernandez captioned the video before adding the hashtag #Tisch.

The future NYU student won't be far from her Old Bridge, NJ, stomping grounds when attending the school.

As for what she'll study there? Well, if we had to wager a guess, dance might be a key element.

After all, Hernandez has already proved that she's a phenomenal dancer in addition to being an Olympian -- she won "Dancing With the Stars" with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy back in 2016.

"I realized because of ["Dancing With the Stars"] how much I love to dance... I'm glad I'm able to go out and keep on dancing," she shared at the time. "It's a passion of mine."
