I've posted this in the Engineering thread but haven't gotten any hits .... or opinions, so I thought I post here.
DS was accepted into the Honors College at Old Dominion Univ (ODU). Financially this is a good school for him but would like an opinion on the Mechanical Engineering program.
The other schools he was accepted into don't offer enough merit money and we don't want him to go into huge debt for a BS degree.
His options at this point: go to CC for two years and transfer into 4 year school. Join military to get the new GI bill benefits, go to ODU for 2 years and transfer to another school, or take a gap year.
I'm thinking that the graduate degree holds more weight than the undergrad.
Would apprecaite any opinions or other ideas on what he can do.
