The one that is confusing me is the second one about the child being under age 24 at the end of the year (which she is) and a student (which she is no longer).

When facing questions of filing status or dependents I always go straight to Pub 501 since there are so many nuances. Starting on page 13 of that pub you'll find a thorough discussion of what constitutes a student for this purpose.
