I´m a chilean undergrad business student (which is known here as Ingeniería Comercial).
Go check the english websites of the universities, they normally have a different way to get in for foreigners, which sometimes doesn´t involve doing the PSU test, including many of the good ones, public or private. Some of them may accept you right away, just be careful about the quality of where are you going.
What field of study do you wanna follow?

My daughter has lived both here and in the US. She is in 11th grade (Tercer Media) in both countries. She will finish in the US hopefully in the next year, but her heart is in Chile and she wants to come back and study here first. She is totally belingual, and wants to take advantage of that to study a carrer in interpreting, or something related. I'm not sure what the best school would be for her to apply to, if one stands out in that area. Any thoughts on that?..anybody.
Also, I hope you are right that a high school diploma from her high school in the US, and test scores will be enough to get her in. I don't want her to get hung up finishing her also.
Before I start contacting admissions at different schools I'd like to have a clue.

The following wikipedia item is not bulletproof but potentially useful

All the cases I know, including my own, were the same. We translated Licenciatura as Bachelors and then we had to take the qualifier exam earlier than usual because we had already taken the graduate level courses during the LIcenciatura, so in the end the Licenciatura degree was taken as a Masters degree (cases in USA, Canada, Germany and France).
I found LIcenciatura more similar to a German Diploma than Bachelors.
