16-year-old graduates from UNLV with 3.9 GPA, will return for law school


Most 16-year-olds are still trying to figure out high school-- but this young lady is now planning for law school.

Not only did Charlotte Rosiak graduate at just 16 years old, she graduated with a 3.9 GPA, which speaks volumes about the amount of dedication she put in.

Charlotte Rosiak graduated with her degree in hospitality. She says she was able to graduate college at such a young age because she skipped the eighth grade and went straight into her freshman year of high school.

Charlotte started taking college classes after school during her freshman year, and the rest was history. She went full-time at UNLV when she was just 14 years old.

Now, two years later, she walked across that stage and graduated with honors. She says she couldn't have pulled it off if it wasn't for her family and strong support system.

"I was the little girl. I always asked for homework. I'd remind the teacher and everyone hated me,” Charlotte said. “But I think it's really dedication and having a good support system around you."

Charlotte’s not finished yet. She's hoping to start law school at UNLV in the fall. She says her father is a family attorney and she plans to follow in his footsteps.
