14-year-old math, chess talent Luke Vellotti enrolls at UCLA
"I'm probably most excited to be at such a challenging school with such great professors in such a great city," said Vellotti, whose ambitions include becoming a doctor and earning the title of chess Grandmaster. "I know that at UCLA I'll be able to push myself harder than I've been able to in Boise." At 10, he completed an introductory engineering course at Boise State. In 2011 and 2012, he won both the Idaho math championship and the state’s science bowl competition.
