Absolutely. I believe Hiten Pandya managed to get a commit bit
*before* going up to University. Or very shortly after.
The way to become a committer is exactly the same for everybody:
submit high quality PRs with patches and enhancements to FreeBSD.
Keep doing so, until you have established a history and reputation as
a good programmer / documentation writer / software porter or
whatever. Eventually you will be punished for your temerity by the
award of a commit bit.
