Could have done it at 16, but I took a year off in the middle for study abroad. Graduated just about a month before turning 18.

My mother enrolled me in private school so I could start 1st grade at 4 years old. I graduated one month after I turned 17.

HA HA ! No, this was 1960 and you couldn't drink or vote until you were 21. I was 20 when I got out of the Army.

I was 17 and did not turn 18 until March of the following year. I started kindergarten at 4 in the local Catholic school.
