She applied for the internship of her dreams last year and she got accepted! The only problem is they are now requiring a diploma or GED. (Something that was not mentioned to her or me when she applied). So we decided it was best for her to drop out of high school get her GED and do the internship. She will get college credit and will be able to start other classes over the summer at the University if she accepts the internship. She was already going to graduate a semester early and now she will be starting a year early.
Would you do the same thing? Is getting diploma more important than passing up an oppertunity and starting college earlier?
Update: she has started her internship and she LOVES it! We are both glad she went this route!
