Senior Achievement: Iran-born scholar excels - but she won't ad...

Welcome to America !! In our country, our women are told at birth they can achieve anything they want. We need more young women like Hedieh to show other countries who treat women as second class citizens, this is what happens when they leave their native country and come to the US. It is our gain and Iran's loss, if she decides to remain in the US after earning her US degree. Good luck in college & in the future. I am not American born, but proud US citizen.

These are exactly the type of immigrants that made this country great. But look at the obstacles placed in their way to come here legally. We need immigration reform, NOT amnesty for illegals, which is what the Democrat "reform" will consist of. The Dims need more voters, and the Repugs need cheap labor. That is why it will never be fixed properly.
I do hope this young woman doesn't go to Berserkly. She will have her poor mind stuffed full of socialist idealism there.

Good job, young lady!
Slight correction to the story: I am not aware that Brown, UCSD, or Stanford guarantee medical school acceptance to their undergrad freshmen. There are 6-year MD programs for high school graduates, but not at these schools.
Besides, entering college, especially an elite one, a student should take the opportunity to explore, find new intellectual interests, maybe a lifetime passion, and not be focused on medical or law schools.

Stanford does not have a bs/md program but Brown does (it's called the PLME) as does UCSD (called the Medical Scholars program.) They're both 8-year programs which allow students who think they are sure of entering the medical field to have a much less stressful time as "premeds" and explore other areas of interest.
And thank you :)
