Jeremy Shuler has been ahead of the curve since day one.
"Early on we realized Jeremy wasn't really ordinary," parents Harrey and Andy Shuler, both aerospace engineers, told Texas Tech Today. While the two have impressive academic backgrounds themselves, they're quick to admit that their son is "much smarter than either of us, for sure."
At age 2 Jeremy was reading books — in English and Korean. By 5, he was studying pre-calculus, and when he took the SAT at age 10, he placed in the 99.6 percentile for all college-bound seniors that year. He also tested as "profoundly gifted" on the WISC-IV — an IQ test for children — with a score of 156, his parents told CNBC.
The latest addition to Jeremy's resume is Cornell University, where the 12-year-old joins the Class of 2020 this fall. According to the school historian, he's could become the youngest graduate ever from the Ivy League institution.
