Haley Taylor Schlitz is trending all over social media following her exploit in academia. She’s just 16-years but has enrolled
at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law, one of the nine law schools that accepted her, according to the American Bar Association.
From what we gathered, Haley will graduate in May with both an Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree. In the upcoming summer, she will be attending a six-day program with the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington for incoming law students.
Haley was homeschooled in the fifth grade due to her parents’ disapproval with the quality of education in her previous public school.
“I was just being taught to pass the end-of-the-year test to get to the next grade,” she told Texas Lawyer. “I wasn’t being taught to learn.”
What’s more, Haley said she wasn’t allowed to take the test to enter the gifted program in her school. Her parents had to have her tested privately, in which they found out she is indeed gifted.
