Home School Acceptances, Class of 2013!

MyOlaHomeMyOlaHome Posts: 35Registered User Junior Member
EDs for CalTech and Stanford went out Friday12/12, MIT 12/15. Anyone?

My son has been home educated for his whole life and has been the "experimental model"by virtue of being the first. Stanford accepted all our homegrown materials, including him! :D

    My first introduction to homeschooling was at Stanford over 2 decades ago when I met a student there who had been homeschooled her whole life. I remember that she would assign her high school aged brother books to read, and they would discuss the books together over the phone. I hope my kids will be as close then... on days like today they seem to just fight ... :-(

    That is great news, MyOlaHome! Don't miss the "ProFro" (prospective frosh) weekend...it's really worth traveling for!

    Our S was accepted to Penn State (University Park, the main campus). He will be joining our older son, who was not homeschooled.

    Congrats to momwriter and to her son! How convenient
    for you to have two students at the same place...and
    probably nice for your two sons to have a familiar face

    Fang Jr was accepted at Kalamazoo and Beloit, both EA. He had been planning to apply to some more schools, but when he got the second acceptance (to Beloit) he decided he was done. He will be attending Kalamazoo.
  • PhotoOpPhotoOp Posts: 1,186Registered User Senior Member
    I thought you could only apply to one school EA. Is that incorrect?
  • HighlandMomHighlandMom Posts: 1,009Registered User Senior Member
    PhotoOp, EA isn't binding whereas ED is binding. Some schools such as Stanford and Yale have Single College EA.
  • cpq1xtbucpq1xtbu Posts: 765Registered User Member
    One more to add: University of Miami (with good merit aid, and an invitation to interview for the full ride).
