  1. Hello, My college-bound son is updating his resume to list the scholarships he has received. The idea is he will use this resume in the future at college to apply for research positions, internships, etc... In listing the scholarships he received under "Academic Achievements", should the amount be listed, as well, or just the scholarship name? Thanks for any advice! Kimm
  2. Did your son decide? I thought I would throw in my two cents. My oldest son goes to a large state university, but still was able to get a research position in his 2nd quarter there, as a junior (he had 2 yrs. of college courses through dual-enrollment). This gave him great experience to land an electrical engineering internship the next summer. Anyway, thought I would let you know that undergrad research IS out there at large universities.
  3. One student's assets do no affect another's FAFSA. In Jan. I did the FAFSA for our 3 kiddos - oldest is 2nd year of college and next two are both seniors. Oldest has a higher EFC than the younger two since he had an engineering internship last summer and made some good $. HTH, Kimm
  4. If he continued to do dual-enrollment, he could bypass having to take the SAT because he would be a transfer student. Having 2 years of college paid for through dual-enrollment is a HUGE $ savings. He also wouldn't necessarily have to take a full load at the CC and would still be eligible for the scholarships. I would be concerned about how it would look to college admissions officers to have a student take CC classes in the junior year and then go back to being fully homeschooled the senior year. Of course this can be explained in the extra info. section of applications, that he was needed
  5. I don't recall specifically because I didn't pay that much attention since they each had 2 years of Spanish also. Sorry, my memory isn't THAT good. Ü
  6. What do you mean "programs" for displaced workers and homemakers reentering the workforce? Do you have more info?
  7. Most colleges have a lot of extra hoops they require homeschoolers to jump through. My kiddos have gone through North Atlantic Regional High School, started mainly to show "proof" that they did high school level work while in middle school. The oldest son had no problem, with this diploma, being accepted to public and private universities across the US. The first problem I had with it was this year: I currently have 2 seniors (and one in his 2nd year in college). My seniors, who will graduate from high school with an AA degree thanks to dual-enrollment were told by a public university in O
  8. I have one son in his 2nd year of college and two seniors, so college applications are pretty recent in my life. Ü Our experience has bee that no, Latin does not meet the foreign language requirement for admissions. It has to be 2 years of a "modern language" like Spanish, German, Japanese, French, etc...some schools even accept ASL now as foreign language (check with the schools your kiddos are interested in). What's funny is that my kiddos had 2 yrs. Latin and 2 yrs. Spanish. While Spanish met the admissions requirement, they listed foreign language as 4 yrs. for overall info. o
  9. Is Vegsource still a good place to sell used homeschool curriculum? It's been several years since I sold anything since it was easier to take them to the homeschool consignment store, but it's winter and I don't want to ship them 2 hrs. away. Kimm
  10. Hi Ladies, It's been a while since I've been here, so not sure if this is the right place to put this question. HOPEFULLY! My kiddos are growing up so you don't see me as much on here anymore (I used to LIVE on here!! Ü). I have one at college (2nd year), and two seniors this year...and one 7th grader. I'm beginning to experience more time (yes, moms of younger kiddos, it DOES happen!). Anyway, I recently completed the FAFSA for my college student and for my two seniors who will be attending college in the fall. We live on one income, have a lot of dependents (relatively)...and

  12. If my high schools senior has taken college courses through dual-enrollment, do I check 1. Attended college before/1st year or 2. Never attended college/1st year While they are college courses, colleges he is applying to has him applying as a 1st year freshman rather than a transfer student. Thanks, Kimm in WA
