It looks like SAH/WOH isn't just for moms any more.

Yikes! It's sounds like your DH (and you?) are more in the women need to act more like men in order to be equals camp. I'm more in the women and men need to have the same choices in order to be equals camp. Furthermore, I think that the only way the "female ghetto" career choices will stop being in the ghetto is for more men to choose those professions. Many women already choose careers traditionally male-dominated fields.

Wow! I am actually kind of saddened that they can call a program like that a "Bachelor of Science" program -- it sounds more like a vocational certificate program. It IS regionally accredited and all that, right?

I would be concerned about that. . . I would encourage her to choose a dental hygiene program at a school that requires liberal arts as part of the BS program.

We ARE lucky to have gotten this far; her girly-girl interests are limited, unless a fascination with all things Harry Potter is a girly-girl thing.

I figured that out too, but sadly for the world it was after my post! ;)

I don't think Harry Potter fascination is at all girly-girl. In fact, my boys are big into Harry, especially the older one, while our girl is completely indifferent.

She's not using the word ghetto to describe jobs held by poor inner city people. She's using it to describe careers that have been traditionally held by women. Teacher, social worker, librarian (to name a few) would also fall into this category.
