Fla. girl, 15, to start at MIT


UPI News Service, 04/17/2011 

A 15-year-old Floridian will start her freshman year at MIT, thanks to perfect SAT scores in math and physics, and a lifetime of academic achievement.

For Jennifer Tilton, Suncoast Community High School's current valedictorian, it's always come naturally.

She started kindergarten when she was 4 and skipped first and fifth grades. She started high school when she was just 11, taking advanced calculus, The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday

"I found my talent," Tilton told the paper. "It happens to be schoolwork. ... I feel like I fit in with the people around me. But being a 15-year-old senior is also part of my identity, and I'm OK with that."

Her mother, Natalie Glover, is a software engineer who also skipped grades and recalls feeling awkward.

"I swore I'd never have my kids do it," she said. "I was two years ahead, and I really felt awkward, like I didn't fit in. And I also started working so early. I've been working so long now."
