  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
  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
  12. ~~Please don't quote me~~ Do public schools generally agree to a request for a student to be a super senior and stay a 5th year in h.s.? In our situation it would not be out of academic necessity but the desire for our daughter to be more emotionally mature and graduate at 18 instead of 17. i realize if everyone did this there may be a big financial burden on the education system, but I also see more Early College programs popping up where they encourage students to do a 13th year and graduate with prerequisites out of the way. She might want to just dual enroll at the local JC
