Brittney Exline , 15, of Colorado Springs, Colo., who has been enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania, and a statue of the founder of the University of Pennsylvania, Benjamin Franklin, photographed in the campus of Philadelphia on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2007. The brilliant girl plans to begin her Ivy League career Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2007, when classes start at the university of Pennsylvania.

Exline grew up in Colorado Springs, Colo., where at 8 years she was already in sixth grade. By 13 she had finished high school math. She turned 15 in February and graduated a few months later.

She excels at math and science and is really interested in politics, so she enrolled in a Penn program that will award her degrees from both the engineering and liberal arts schools when she graduates in 2011.

"Her motivation, discipline and maturity provided clear evidence that, despite her age, she was ready to travel halfway across the country and thrive in Penn's rigorous academic environment," Eric Kaplan, interim dean of admissions, said in a statement. [Quoted from Yahoo News]
