  1. Reported. Poster changed the link in Kendall's original post.
  2. Is there anything computational she can do for lab work--analyzing data she has collected, modeling the data, that sort of thing? My dd's current lab work involves computational genetics modeling (and she didn't have significant coding experience going in) and she has been able to continue that pretty much uninterrupted (though it does involve Zoom meetings with her PI).
  3. Can she unschool the semester--spend time doing whatever motivates her? If she had already chosen a college I might have suggested contacting the professors she would be doing research with to see if there are things she could do ahead of her arrival there, but since she hasn't yet decided and has plenty of time to do so, that might not work at this point.
  4. I have had to reset my password twice. Yesterday I reset it and it worked for a day and then just now I had to change my password again.
  5. The above advice may be best, but isn't he already going to a college close to home? Would he have the option of taking his classes remotely from home? Do you know if he could keep his scholarships if he delayed?

  7. I don't have personal experience with Austin College but since it is one of the "Colleges that Change Lives", it doesn't strike me as problematic and I personally wouldn't worry about the scores. He has a full ride there, it is good in his major, it is close to home so it would be easier for you to support him--those all sound like wins to me. With your description of the CS dept at Baylor and other factors that have caused him/you to sour on it, I most certainly wouldn't pay more to send him there, especially if he no longer wants to go there. I don't know anything about Hendrix but
  8. Do you have suggestions as to how to find out how much of a college's budget is tuition? I tried to look it up for a college of interest but couldn't find it easily.
  9. I would run their Net Price Calculators to get an idea of whether their financial aid would be in the range of what you would need. https://www.austincollege.edu/admission/financial-aid/net-price-calculator/ https://www.southwestern.edu/scholarships-financial-aid/grants-loans/net-price-calculator/
  10. Christian colleges in Texas besides ACU that give full tuition (but not full ride) for National Merit Finalists are Dallas Baptist University, East Texas Baptist University, and Lubbock Christian University.
  11. A couple Christian colleges that give full rides (tuition, fees, room, and board) for National Merit are Oklahoma Christian University and Harding University (Arkansas).
  12. Corraleno is right, and unfortunately strategy #1 would only maintain eligibility for the smaller scholarships that the National Merit Corporation itself gives out. Most, if not all of the large scholarships given by certain colleges to National Merit Finalists are limited to entering freshmen only. Strategy #2 would eliminate both types of National Merit Scholarships, but would keep options open for other freshman scholarships as long as they don't require a student to begin college the fall after graduation (and I have seen a few that do require this). "Students who plan to leave high
  13. Ok, here's an Inside Higher Ed article that has a link to the PDF I tried to link earlier: https://www.insidehighered.com/admissions/article/2019/08/28/college-board-overhauls-adversity-index I, too, am wondering what they're going to do with homeschooled students as far as the "school score" goes.
