i dunno. i knew a guy back in the day. his parents were first generation chinese, and his dad was hardcore. in grade 5 is dad taught him calculus and advanced physics, and from then on his dad made him do questions of each for an hour a day until he was done high school. anyways he did really well in school, not of a child prodigy but still a pretty smart kid. i dunno, wasn't too much smarter than me given that i went home every night and played warcraft for hours.

anyways his goal all the way through high school was to get into Harvard, and if that didn't happen then plan B was the health science program at Mac. He didn't get into either. I just remember seeing him walking home that day, not even crying, but just looking lost, like his life depended on it.

I guess my point is that I don't think genius like this can be forced, nor should it.
