I homeschooled and recently graduated from a top LAC

I homeschooled for 8th-11th grade (effectively didn't do a 4th year of high school) and then went on to a top 30 LAC (Oberlin). I graduated with two majors and high honors and am now applying to neuroscience graduate programs. For homeschool I did 3 years of math/science at the public high school, all English/social studies through Keystone (the early days of the school!), all electives were self-taught or locally taught (art, theater, entrepreneurship, etc), and I traveled internationally for many months. I was very self-directed. Non-religious.

If you have any questions about getting into college, or what it's like once you're there, feel free to post them here, or send me a message!
