I am 15yrs old and after talking to my gifted teacher and guidance counselor have decided to pursue early admission in either the 2007 or 2008 school year (after 10th or 11th grade). I am currently a sophmore at my high school, but am bored. I am taking the most challenging course load of anyone at my school and will run out of math classes at the end of my 10th grade year.
