Just for my own amusement, I've made a timeline because I just can't understand how Cuddy can be 38 and still have gone to university at the same time as House.



House was born 6/11/59. Cuddy said in The Social Contract that she is 38. Assuming she isn't lying about her age (House didn't argue with her) and that she could have turned 39 the next day, she would have to have been born in 1970 or 1971. I like even numbers, so let's say 1970.

Just for the sake of argument, let's say because House was such a genius that he graduated high school at 16 in 1975 (and because he's said that he's been a doctor for over 20 years). Cuddy would be 5. House would be pre-med from 1975 to 1979. When House graduated pre-med, Cuddy would be 9. Med school for House would be from 1979 to 1983. Cuddy would be 13 when he graduated and still in 8th grade. Even if House had to add 4 years (very unlikely) onto his time in med school (because of getting kicked out of Hopkins), that would make his med school graduation 1987. Cuddy would be 17 AND STILL IN OR BARELY OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. (It would be more likely that he was at Hopkins less than 4 years, and the University of Michigan would've taken his credits from Hopkins, so it's not likely that he had to add any time on to med school at all. Which, of course, would make Cuddy 13 when he graduated med school and 15 if House graduated high school at 18.) House's internship and residency add another 4 years, and his double specialty would presumably add even more time onto that. If House graduated high school at 17 or 18, that would make it even more improbable that they could've attended university at the same time.

If my math or logic is wrong, feel free to call me stupid. It wouldn't be the first time. ;-)

OK. Now I feel better. Obsess much?
