Texas Christian University (TCU), has admitted its youngest student, 11-year-old Carson Huey-You.
Carson scored a 17700 on his SATs and was his senior class’ valedictorian.
Huey-You hopes to become a quantum physicist.
Dean of Admission Ray Brown said he cannot recall ever having an applicant so young.
Carson couldn’t even apply online because the software is not set to accept someone born in 2002, Brown said.
During his admission interview, Carson’s many talents were impressive. Brown said Carson spoke Mandarin Chinese, and played piano in the Admissions Center.
Prior to Carson, Brown said the youngest student to enroll at the university during his tenure was Sam Hong, who graduated in 2011 at age 17.
Carson’s parents expect him to graduate in four to five years, when he is 15 or 16.
Congratulations, Carson, on your accomplishments!
Best of luck this school year and beyond!
