Boy genius Carson Huey-You was only 10 years old when Texas Christian University accepted him to enroll in their quantum physics curriculum. The 11-year-old scored a critical reading score of 580, a math score of 620, and a writing score of 570 to receive a total SAT score of 1770. Huey-You also graduated with a 4.0 GPA as the co-valedictorian of the Accommodated Learning Academy's senior class.

Texas Christian University Dean of Admission Ray Brown expressed that he cannot recall ever having an applicant so young. In fact, Carson couldn't even apply for classes online as the application restricts registration from a person born in 2002. During Carson Huey-You's admission interview, he desmonstrated his talents in speaking Mandarin Chinese, and played the piano in the Admissions Center.

The remarkable boy genius demonstrated his intelligence at a very young age. Carson Huey-You began to read chapter books at the age of two and participated a math and reading learning program before he was three, where he learned algebra. Carson excelled at the eighth grade level by the age of five.

Beyond school work, Carson Huey-You also enjoys to spend his time participating in science clubs and foreign language clubs where he learns Mandarin Chinese. Huey-You also taught himself to play the piano by watching online videos.

Professors at Texas Christian University are deeply impressed by Carson Huey-You's abilities. Huey-You is currently enrolled in calculus, physics, history, and religion.

"He's definitely very talented and also he's very serious about his work and he really enjoys it," commented associate math professor Qao Zhang. "And that's the best that a professor can hope for his students, right?"

Carson Huey-You's younger brother, Cannan, is 7-years-old and is currently attending school at the 8th grade level. Cannan is slated to graduate as early as age 13.

Despite the remarkable talent, the gifted siblings enjoy a normal life of friends, video games, and sports. Carson and Cannon love to play MineCraft and are Star Wars fans as well. Carson's favorite Jedi is Master Windu, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Carson Huey-You's favorite TV program is "MythBusters," an educational and highly entertaining show of conducting science experiments to hilarious and destructive results. Finally, Carson and Cannon enjoy swimming, football, and basketball.

Despite Carson Huey-You's astonishing achievements, the first-year student has much more to do before he achieves his dream to become a quantum physicist. Carson is expected to graduate in four to five years at the age of 15 or 16. If he graduates in four years, he will have a diploma in his hands before he even has a driver's license.
