  1. I'm looking for good kindle Fire learning apps for a 12 year old, especially if they cover core subjects. thank you!
  2. I agree AEC and thank you. I have continued to research this question and found out that U of M, probably in the top three in the nation, does the same thing with 17 concentrations available with a general BSE.
  3. If you take out the aerospace component, because that desire may fade, and just consider degree value upon graduation, wouldn't the BSME provide more opportunities whether for jobs or grad school than the BSE with concentration?
  4. My son has been admitted to several schools with engineering programs. Some offer BSME, a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and some just a BS in Engineering with an emphasis or concentration in Mechanical. At this moment his plan is to either to go to grad school for aerospace engineering after getting his BS, or transfer and complete the 4 year in aerospace engineering. My thinking is that the universities that offer a BSME would be more desired and specialized than a BS with an emphasis in Mechanical. All are ABET programs. Should he only be considering the BSME? Or also consider the BS programs that have an emphasis option? Thank you!
  5. Thank you. That is helpful! if I think of something I will definitely ask!
  6. My son was going to stay at the local jc for the first year after graduation, but we all agreed he should apply to colleges even though it's quite late. He's been accepted to Grove City College, Geneva, Taylor University and probably Hope College. He wants to study mechanical engineering. I'd love input on these colleges generally and specifically on their engineering programs. Thank you!
  7. Just had a favorable phone call with the state assoc. rule-maker. It will be fine. Thanks everybody.
  8. (We don't have Tebow laws in our state. But when she does return to a public high school for 9th, she will be dual enrolled and still take a couple classes at home and do the minimum 60% required by state rules for public school sports.)
  9. Updated original post to be more clear.
  10. Thanks for any input!!
  11. Please don't quote me~ in our area, we have an Early College program that requires a 13th year and the student graduates with a HS diploma and an AA. The reason she likes dual enrollment is more for flexibility in which college classes she takes and which would transfer to her 4 year. And are AAs really helpful if she's definetly going to 4 year university? Good point about college sports Lori. She will have used up all 4 years of eligibility so she wouldn't play her 13th year, but around here coaches have made up their minds on the junior year season usually and girls sign the fall of the senior year before that season begins. Also, she has AAU going into the 13th year if she hasn't signed and needs more exposure. On a whole other thread I asked about whether she should repeat 8th, where she is now. Lots of factors going into that...beyond the scope of this question. Based on those replies and talking to college coaches and college players and trainers, she will stick with the team she's been with since her early years and not repeat. I also think there's a decent chance our basketball and soccer coaches would allow her to train and scrimmage with the teams that last season when she is ineligible to play and she could offer to assist/manage the team and otherwise be helpful to them In anyway she can. So yes it would be unusual. But some kids get injured and can't play their senior year. Hoping a college coach would consider and not penalize her for a unique situation that she's in. She does not want to do a prep school or move away and do JC and play sports (no JC sports here) But ideally just graduate at the correct age and be at home til then. Otherwise she would be starting college at 17.
