We are a family came from another country with minimal knowledge about US colleges and educational system.
My daughter is a high school junior who was just acceptable by USC ( university of Southern California) residential honor program which allows her to skip 12th grade and start college a year early. We, including my daughter herself, are not sure if she should accept the offer vs continue current path to apply other possible higher level schools or Unoversity of Michigan which will save us about 120k for the four-year study. We are a middle class family, concerning about the extra amount of money but willing to pay if it is worthy.
Based on my daughter's crendential, she won't qualify for Harvard, Yale, Mit, but there is a change she can get other Ivy schools and again she have a good chance to get to UM where we pay in-state tuition if she apply next year. In addition, my daughter is thinking about going to medical school but not really sure.
Does anyone know anything about the program or have any other advices? Does anyone know how competitive those BS-MD programs are comparing to USC residential honor program?
Thank you in advance for reading the post. All thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!
