I need some help with my life. Age 16: After years on the borderline of failing my math classes I decide that I want to be a physicist, and I read that calculus is important towards this end. Age 17: Convinced high school AP calc teacher to allow me into the class, even though my math grades are terrible. After the year long course I get a C, but get 100% on the AP exam. Age 18: Enter the local university as a physics major. In a class where the test average is in the 40s, I consistently have the highest exam score by a 30pt margin. Age 19: Have finished all the classes required for a physics major, and begin serious self study of mathematics. Age 20: I wrote a textbook and acted as the lecturer for a course that other undergraduates took for credit (I am considered the local expert on Mathematica). Begin serious self-study of computer science. Current Age 21: I am often told "you are ready for the end of graduate school", even though I will not graduate with my bachelor's degree until Spring 2008. Problem: No money. More specifically, I am writing this email because I have no one to talk to at school, they all hate me. Other students get the money instead, even though they are all rich (my school, although 3rd rate, is located in paradise and so it attracts some world-class professors and lots of rich kids who didn't do good in high school). I grew up in a single parent welfare home, and the only times I've traveled more than 100 miles from home has been for severe medical emergencies. None of my classmates/professors know this about me, they all assume I was a child prodigy raised by mathematician parents with lots of money. What should I do?
