  1. Received the good news (x 2) in our mailbox this morning. :hurray: Many thanks again to this forum for its guidance in the overall process. Hope everyone else's letters arrive quickly this week as well!
  2. Good news struck our house twice last night. Both DD1 and DD2 were accepted at the University of Notre Dame via REA. Both have one more school to hear from yet, but last night's news made me so incredibly thankful for the homeschool journey we've been able to experience as a family. And so grateful for this Board and everyone who shared their advice, especially when it came to homeschooling the high school years.
  3. My two twins took the SAT II Biology right after we finished our version of Honors Biology in 10th grade with Miller Levine. They both scored 800 on the test. They used Barron's.
  4. Something for those with 10th graders to think about in addition to snowbeltmom's recommendation: I learned on this board last year that a confirming score could be any SAT taken from October of the 10th grade year to the December one of the 12th grade year. At least one experienced boardie proposed the idea of having your junior take the October SAT given right before the official PSAT. By then the junior could have enough PSAT practice to score well on the SAT and any high achieving score could then serve as a confirming one. This would further reduce the test load in the senior year. Just something to consider.
  5. My two 10th grade daughters just got theirs. We've been trying all day. I actually spent an hour on the phone with a College Board customer service rep who discovered that PSAT had the wrong email for one of my girls. My other daughter's email address was correct, but she hadn't received any access code. Neither of my kids had set up any College Board account before 8 am today, so we were resigned to the notion that we'd be waiting for the snail mail to be delivered Jan. 29th. We also had lots of trouble with their accounts when it came to adding school info. We tried everything mentioned in this thread. Finally, my husband had them go through the "My Plan" tab to update school info and it allowed us to enter State Homeschool, State Code. Still, both girls kept getting the "you have no record of any assessment test" message. Pretty disheartening to read that after waiting for almost 3 months. The good news: Both did extremely well. Their scores also matched up almost identically with their June 2015 ACT testing, so maybe their ACT scores weren't flukes after all. :lol: To those of you still waiting - Keep trying!!
  6. MarkT, would you mind sharing this with me as well? I'm starting this in a month with my two new high schoolers and any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Lisa, I like your new pic. Is that you with your youngest? Cute!
