    Our son was accepted to NC State, Indiana, Appalachian State, and UNC Asheville. All were very receptive to homeschoolers.

    Always homeschooled, with dual-credit courses junior year (total 14 credit hours) and senior year (total 22 credit hours)

    Our S was accepted to Texas A&M, Florida State, and Chapman Univ (in film production + $16k/year merit $)

    Also received Army ROTC scholarship to Chapman - value close to $150,000 ($32k/year tuition, $1,000/year books, approx. $15k over 4 years for stipend, + fees)

    Congratulations to all of you on your/your child's acceptances! The list should grow in the next couple weeks as decisions continue to come in. :)

    I've been homeschooled since sixth grade, and so far I've been accepted to the U of Pittsburgh, Rollins College, Denver University, University of Colorado, and Duquesne University with merit scholarship...

    Congrats to all!!!!

    Update --

    U Chicago EA
    Washington & Lee (with full-ride scholarship)
    U Pitt (with full-tuition scholarship)
    U Dallas (with full-tuition scholarship)
    UVA -- as an Echols Scholar

    U Chicago is probably not going to happen because of finances. Now for the decision-making process. Considering we already had a fight last night over this, it is not going to be fun. Choices are good, but this month should be INTERESTING!
  • 'rentof2'rentof2 Registered User Posts: 4,327 Senior Member
    LOL. Yeah... it should be interesting all right. ;)

    There's a fascinating range of options there. Does your son have a preference? Is that what the argument was about?
