16-Year-Old Girl from Texas Accepted Into 9 Law Schools
EBONY - March 21, 2019
Haley Taylor Schlitz, a college senior at Texas Women’s University, has been accepted into nine law schools. The 16-year-old appeared on Good Morning America Thursday and shared her educational journey.
The road to excellence was a challenging one for the teen. She struggled in a traditional classroom setting. Her parents decided to homeschool her in the fifth grade once they noticed a decline in her grades.
“I started to become more worried about what my peers thought of me rather than my grades, and so my parents decided to pull me out. That and I couldn’t get into the gifted and talented program, and then they homeschooled me,” the Texas native said.
