Having worked with a number of homeschooled students over the
last several years, we have found that there are some important
additions to the Common Application that must be made. Homeschooled
students apply in the same way that traditional high school students
apply, but their applications should sparkle above and beyond.
The admissions committees place greater emphasis on your SAT/ACT scores
to compare you to the traditional student and then very closely
analyze your written documents to determine your ability to function and
thrive in a college environment.

"I wrote a Personal Essay prior to working with Joan. After
her analysis, I ripped it up and started over. I totally got what she
was saying. Joan suggested a different topic to bring out different

checked in every 20 minutes to make sure I was on the right path ,and
then it was like magic, a great essay was completed."
"ED to Columbia! We can't thank Joan enough for guiding
my son through the Common Application and Supplement Questions. She
explained how to apply as a homeschooled student in detail. The stress
that we felt as parents diminished as soon as she took over. We really
had no idea what we doing. Thanks again, forever grateful.
