I know she has grants which I assume pays for most of her tuition. I think it's the travel expenses that are getting her now. She spends $25 a day in gas to get to class because of the 75 mile drive. I don't know how many miles her car has on it but it's not in the best shape. I don't expect it to hold out through next semester if she continues to drive.

There is very little flexibility for the engineers at our school when making out your schedule. There is usually only one class available for each subject during the semester so you don't get to choose when to take it and you have to take your classes in a very specific order so you are pretty much stuck with what you get.

The school isn't much help with getting internships. It's up to the student to seek them out and then hope that they are a paid internship, which not all are.
