so lauren lewis is thirty odd years old
she was a combat medic in afghanistan
she was a bonafide eco-terrorist
she has a phd in two different scientific fields
she’s had three different aliases
she speaks four languages
she spent five years as a slave to a race of uber humanoids
i don’t actually have a point i just want everyone to be aware how amazing she is what did you do in a thousand years dyson learn how to smell more things and run around naked
Doesn’t she also have an MD? Because 2 phDs + 1 MD = 12 years of schooling. Let’s say she’s 35 (which I think is pushing it, she looks 32-ish). This means she would have started her indentured servitude at 30 and graduate college at 18. Maybe she finished her phDs really quickly? Let’s say 10, including the MD (which you can’t really rush, med school is a 4 year process no matter how smart you are, unless there’s some loophole I don’t know about). This means that the latest she could have graduated college was at age 20.
Now, this is all assuming she never did any sort of residency. Assuming she did (because she’s awfully good at practicing and I’m pretty sure the army doesn’t let you serve as a combat medic unless you’ve at least finished a year or two of your residency) this would add another 2 years, conservatively. Which means she would have graduated college at 18, probably even earlier.
Meanwhile, I’m 19 and can barely get my homework turned in on time.
