Don't be negative. You have to do the work and pass the tests. She was obviously able. The article says that she's a biomedical engineering major. She might even come up with a cure for cranky dispositions.

I'm not as bright as this young lady but I had better grades at UVA than I did in high school. I can relate to being bored in public school.

I am not being negative. Brilliant people trated like firt, and once in a while some is handed the opportunity to skip years of school

You assume I am negative. How do you justify the majority being treated like dirt?
