Teen Graduates High School ... and College (in Same Week)

How old were you when you graduated from high school? What about college? Unless you were able to do both ... in the same week ... at the young age of 16, we're not too impressed.

Meet Grace Bush. She's 16 and graduated college—get this—BEFORE high school, according to the Huffington Post. If you're starting to feel unaccomplished, just wait ... there's more.

The teenager started taking college classes when she was just 13. She studied even during her summers and was able to get all her credits in three years. This week, she'll graduate from her high school in Boca Raton, Fla., already having received her degree in criminal justice from Florida Atlantic University.

How'd she handle balancing high school homework and college assignments? She graduated from the university with a 3.8 GPA. *Ahem* Overachieve much?

But Bush isn't satisfied, yet. She still feels she has a lot of learning to do: Bush will start a master's program in the fall (she's finally taking some time off for the summer ... to study for the LSAT) and will eventually enroll in law school.

She hopes to one day be a chief justice of the United States.

At the rate she's going, we imagine that'll happen sometime in her early 20s. Best of luck, Grace!
