“I had completed enough math at The Brearley School that I was able to take calculus at Columbia over the summer. I enjoyed the class so much that I continued taking math, physics, and theoretical computer science classes. I have almost completed the requirements for a math major at Columbia. I just found out that I've been accepted to Cambridge and Yale and I'm looking forward to starting college!”
– FRANCESCA SLADE, Age 17
