The son of a microbiologist father and arts center director mother, Greg Smith became something of a media sensation when he was accepted into college before he’d even reached his teens. Here’s a look at how the young brain-box has fared in the 16 years since.

And when Smith was just five years old, he took an IQ test in which he “tested off the bell curve.” Undoubtedly, then, he was unusually gifted.
