More info on Homeschoolers getting into college

Tara on the VaEclecticHS email list forwarded this article about how college admissions folks are coming to view homeschool applicants.

"Homeschooled students, by and large, are a liberal arts college's dream," says Sabena Moretz-Van Namen, associate director of admission at the University of Richmond. "We want more students who think outside the box and color outside the lines. Homeschoolers often have developed into self-directed learners. Traditional high school students sometimes lack that trait."

My feeling is that it is going to get easier and easier as time goes on for homeschooled kids to get into college with a non-traditional transcript. Very good news indeed!
