IAMA 17 year old PhD Student who graduated high school at 10 and college at 15. AMA.
I am a female, 17 year old graduate student working towards her PhD in Neuroscience at a major research university. I graduated from university in Dec 2010, when I was 15. In addition, I graduated high school in December 2005, when I was 10 years old.
For third through twelfth grade, I was able to take part in a distance education program run through Texas Tech University. Although I was able to complete the requirements at home, I was following the state curriculum normally presented in schools... pointless projects included (my personal favorite: a book on elves). All exams were proctored, assignments mailed to my teacher, and lesson requirements met. Since I was able to set my own pace, I was able to complete the aforementioned grades in four years (and a week or two).
I started college the following fall at a local community college, before transferring after two years to an actual university. I graduated with my BS in biology in Dec 2010, and worked in a research lab (as well as taking a few extra post-bacc classes) until being accepted to my current (more prestigious) university in the PhD in Neuroscience program.
All of my proof has my full name on it (and not in a way that can be hidden), so I've messaged the mods for verification. Ask away.
EDIT: Proof has been submitted to mods. There's nothing else I can do. I am Caucasian. I do not regret doing what I did- I feel I've made up for what I missed. I was pulled out of normal school because my education was being compromised for the sake of the weakest in my class and my parents wanted better for me.
