Congratulations....to her..Nothing special. Both parents are financially stable, both parents are lawyers.... both parents are intelligent ( working for CNN). Education is about determination and having the Right guardians with financial power. If she can't achieve her dreams......then there's something wrong.

So she excelled at school and leapt through the curriculum?
