  1. We have news! accepted at : UCSB, UCSC, UCMerced, UCIrvine, UCRiverside. waitlisted at UCLA and UCDavis.
  2. Hi Kai - the facebook group was a great help. we sent lots of info off (school profile, textbooks, course descriptions, transcript, etc, etc). we got an acknowledgment back that simply said "thank you. we will get back to you if we have further questions." and so far that is it. will keep you posted. ann
  3. thank you! i have just applied. i hope they are speedy in adding me to the group. thanks again.
  4. we are down to 3.5 days. does anyone have any ideas?!!
  5. dd#4 just received an email from the University of California system asking who certifies our homeschool. we file a private school affidavit, which means we are legal. but not certified per se. all her AP classes are thru pennsylvania homeschoolers and are certified but ??? advice? suggestions? aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh....... they gave her five days or they will cancel processing her application. this never happened with the first three kids.

  10. :grouphug: it depends on the person. with some folks, there is no winning for losing, kwim? flip side, there may be things that help. eg. i messaged our families with links every time there was a local school lockdown/violence/drug bust/shooting i didn't comment about homeschooling, but would comment about how awful it was. i sent emails when there were important milestones, as long as they were timely or earlier than in the public school system. and i told the children that it wasn't a healthy relationship move for them to answer questions that were knowledge quizzes. they c
  11. oh no!!! he's a figher; i am just so sorry and angry for him that he has to fight again.... :grouphug: ann
