11-Year-Old Mexican Prodigy Heads to Harvard in Fall

Luis Roberto Ramírez Álvarez (

Inquisitr Update: Luis Roberto Ramirez Alvarez may be a genius, but Harvard has no record of his admission as a student. Colin Manning of Harvard University made a statement about the reports: “We do not discuss individual students, but I can tell you that Harvard College has no record of this applicant.”

Most 11-year-olds are stressing about the big move to middle school. Not Luis Roberto Ramírez Álvarez. The little boy from Michoacán, Mexico is headed to Harvard this fall.

He's planning to study Quantum physics. The aspiring entrepreneur reportedly wants to launch his own company to improve social networking and technology after graduation. When he's, you know, 16.

His interests aren't limited to science and engineering, however. At just five years of age, the young genius taught himself English, French and Mandarin Chinese.

We don't use the term genius lightly, either. The kid was tested and he literally has an IQ on par with Albert Einstein.
