I am a homeschool student entering 12th grade. I will be applying to colleges this fall and have a few unrelated questions:
1) Firstly, who should I put as my guidance-councilor on the common app? I will be applying to some very prestigious colleges, what do they prefer? I am considering naming my mother as my guidance-councilor, however I am not sure if this is wise. Do top schools care?
2) My second question is completely unrelated to my first. Do UC schools like homeschoolers? I am thinking of apply to a few but heard somewhere that apply to UC schools as a homeschooler was particularly difficult. Is this right?
I know both questions are unrelated, but I did not want to make 2 different threads. ;) If you know the answer to either question or have any tips, please let me know! :)
