Never tiring of a good art school scandal, Yale University has expelled a 19-year-old graduate art student, who claims she was told she was being dismissed because she wasn't mature enough, the New Haven Register reports. Annabel Osberg, the youngest master of fine arts student at Yale by about 10 years, is planning to sue the university, accusing it of age discrimination.

Osberg was home-schooled through high school and graduated from California State University-San Bernardino at age 18. She was accepted into Yale's top-ranked graduate art school the next year, and some $52,000 in tuition later, she was dismissed. "My parents were very proud about my acceptance at Yale. Now, everything is lost," she said.

While Osberg seems to be telling her story to pretty much anyone who will listen (check IvyGate for the video; stop looking at the camera!), Yale has not commented on the accusations, obviously taking a cue from that other art school fiasco.
