At this time of the year, most 16-year-olds in the U.S. are thinking about winding down their years in high school, spending the summer break working, or camping with their friends.
This is not the case for Haley Taylor Schlitz, a North Texas teen who is going from being home-schooled to a law school at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas.
The 16-year-old is already on track to graduate with both an associate’s and a bachelor’s degree in May. The Fort Worth teen will use her upcoming summer to prepare for law school and attend a six-day programme with the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington for incoming law students, according to Texas Lawyer.
