By now, if she had been homeschooled she might already have a Ph.D. and M.D. combined, and not be just entering medical school in the fall.

Why? What's the rush? She had a wonderful high school experience playing in the band, softball, Academic team. She had a wonderful college experience with her music, sports, overseas travel, her volunteer work.

What's the rush to start life? I've never, ever understood that sentiment that you have. I LIKE that she took the time to discover her passion, enlarge her knowledge base, and experience what is out there.

To each his own I guess... Plus she doesn't want an MD/PHD. Probably IR - that will be a long enough road as it is what with the dual residencies.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The point is that we do not know ( for your children or mine) what the outcome would have been if they had taken a different educational path.
