  1. Thanks for sharing! OKBud, are you using a paper planner then? perkybunch, wow, that seems like a neat system! Kind of like a physical version of a Kanban board like Trello or something. I wonder if I have room for something like that. That might be good. I like the idea of being able to physically hold the card and move it around to other days.
  2. Hi all! I would love to hear, if anyone is willing to take the time to explain and share, exactly how you have helped your teens or how your teens have devised plans on their own to manage their workflow, keep up with a lot of different online classes, and get it all done on time. Time management is not my forte. (I have the appearance of being organized and juggle a lot of things but usually, behind the curtain, I am struggling to keep my head above water. So I worry I'm not the best one to pass on good habits.) Specifically for teens taking multiple classes with a variety of different t
  3. Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've visited these forums, but thank you so much for everything I have learned here, and for those of you sticking around to help those of us still in this! My youngest is interested in playing a varsity sport in college, and I want to make sure I am doing everything correctly. I have pored through all of the NCAA threads I could find, but I wasn't able to find anything recent. It looks like maybe the NCAA has changed some things since some of those threads, so I just want to make sure I'm understanding things correctly. Specifically, I have questions
  4. Thanks for sharing this info! I know this is an old thread, but I'm trying to get my ducks in a row and have some questions about this. If anyone is still around, I appreciate any insight! My son is a rising junior, and I agree that some of the information for homeschoolers on the NCAA website seems very straightforward, but there are some things that aren't as clear to me. If you use a course from an online provider that is already "Cleared" by the NCAA, then it seems straightforward. But what do you do if the provider and course are not pre-approved? And, similarly, what do you do if you wan
  5. I also have a homeschooled athlete who is interested in trying for D1 schools. Can you share more about your process? It seems pretty straightforward if you are using online providers that already have NCAA approval for core courses, but what if you are using a provider that is not? Or using a combination of resources for a core course? Many thanks for any help!
  6. Thank you! I think I liked it the way it was set up before better, but thank you for pointing me to those!
  7. Hi, I am pretty sure this is not be a new thing, but it is new to me. You used to be able to answer some questions and Khan Academy made a suggestion for where you should start in math. Is that possible? I have been searching and the only thing I can see are the courses. This is actually for me. I need to take a higher level math course again and I want to go back and review, but I really don't have a clue where to start. I don't want to trudge through all of algebra, geometry, etc., I just want it to figure out where I need to review and help me progress through. The whole thing u
  8. I am sure we can't know all the details, as no one else knows what is going on in anyone else's family, but I don't see how that is any different than a student whose family wants to pay their EFC but can't afford it, for whatever reason. It's just a decision. Some may decide to take out more loans and others will opt for less debt and go where the money is.
  9. I am sure that is so hard! My kids play sports and one is thinking about playing at college, and this exact scenario is what I keep thinking about! So hard to be far away!
  10. One thing that became very real in the application process for me, as a parent, was how much time everything took. Just keeping up with deadlines, what different colleges need, who wants an interview, who doesn't care, who takes level of interest into account, etc. It's not just the application, but also the interviews, supplemental information, and scholarship applications for some. Some of our in-state options have some very nice scholarship options that require an entirely different application process, and some were reserved for students who applied early. We didn't really look at thos
  11. I hope things are getting better!! You've had a lot thrown at you! :grouphug:
  12. Congratulations! What a great feeling! :hurray:
  13. Wow, that is GREAT news!!!! :hurray:
  14. I always make a pie on Pi Day but haven't gotten any supplies yet. I need to get to the store! A few years ago, we had friends over on Pi Day and had all different kids of pie to sample and celebrate. It was so fun! Time is getting shorter and shorter though, so we didn't plan anything special this year. I am not feeling very productive lately and need to get my act together. I feel like I am drowning in a sea of To Do's. I think I need to revamp my list system because it is not working very well right now. I have so many different categories of things to keep track of right now and am
  15. My first pairs of Birkenstocks were the original footbed, and I had them for years, like 20 years or more, and they never smelled bad. I had the Arizona and the Boston. And I wore them a lot. More recently, I decided to try a pair of the Boston style with the soft footbed, and after a few years, they started to STINK! Like horrible foot odor, LOL. For a while, I kept smelling this horrible stinky feet smell, walking around trying to find the source, and I finally figured out it was me! :lol: However, it did take about 2-3 years of daily use for them to start to smell. The weird thi
  16. He sounds like an amazing kid and I am sure he will do amazing things! I am so sorry for this big roadblock that landed in front of him. Is there any chance of an appeal? If not, maybe he can do very similar things but in private industry instead. I think there are a lot of private contractors that do similar work for the government, so maybe he can still have the type of career he wants. Sending good thoughts!!
  17. I'm so sorry. This is hard stuff. I am trying to figure out how many loans DS could take and how much we could actually pay, and I am just not sure how it's all going to work out. It is really tough. :grouphug: Even with scholarships, some of these private schools are just very expensive.
  18. Wow, that was speedy!! The wait is so hard.
  19. Hi, There is a question on the FAFSA that says this: What will your high school completion status be when you begin college in the 2018-2019 school year? Two of the choices are "High school diploma" and "Home schooled". At first, I thought the answer should just be "Home schooled," but then I thought maybe I should double check. We live in a state that doesn't issue diplomas, so we just do it ourselves, but we will give a homeschool high school diploma. What is the correct way to answer? UPDATED: Never mind, I read the instructions more clearly, but I will leave this here in case any
  20. I wouldn't worry too much about that. I am sure they understand that things happen. :grouphug:
  21. Thanks for the encouragement! Hugs again!! I am so sorry and I hope you can get it all sorted out.
  22. When you upload it, are you able to preview it and then submit it, or is there any kind of button that says, click here to confirm, or anything like that? I am just trying to prepare myself. It seems like they should at least give you one opportunity to confirm or cancel. I'm sorry that happened, cave. :grouphug: I would try not to worry about typos and things like that, but maybe just use the optional report to submit a replacement of the things that have significant errors, like the wrong GPA. Good luck.
