Colleges That Throw Money at You!

Colleges That Throw Money at You!
In my "Big Scholarships" video, I discuss aiming towards a college that will pay you money to go there. Find a college where your child is the best applicant they see all year, and they will throw money at you :-) Of course, it's always difficult to balance the academic needs against the financial needs, and that's why applying to LOTS of colleges can help.

CLEP Study Recommendations

CLEP Study Recommendations
When we did CLEP, I preferred using the Official Study Guide by College Board® as a entry-level "can we pass this" assessment.

Homeschooling the Profoundly Gifted
Janel in North Dakota met me at a homeschool convention, and we shared our worries about homeschooling profoundly gifted children.

Home School Education - Homeschool College this Summer!
Right there on the brochure it said: "Who takes CLEP? A homeschooled 15-year-old." I felt somewhat reassured when I walked into the test center, knowing that my son couldn't be THAT unusual, since his demographic was right on the brochure. And imagine my surprise! Within the month, my son obtained college credit in "Principles of Marketing" and "Business Law" and yet I had never purchased marketing or law curriculum! How does that happen, exactly? As a...

Homeschool Transcript Tip
