I thought that one of the reasons Ashley Hebert didn’t tell Brad Womack she loved him on The Bachelor was because her career came first and she needed to finish dental school. Now she is the new Bachelorette. What’s up with that?

Hebert, 26, is on track to graduate in May from dental school, which she attends in Philadelphia. She took a break from her courses to film The Bachelorette, then went right back to the books. “There is no way I would drop out of school,” says the native of Madawaska, Maine. “It really is my No. 1 priority—believe it or not! Luckily, I have been supported by my school in such a great way that I am able to do both.”
