Background info: I'm trying to convince my parents let me unschool. No success so far :(
One reason I think is because I'm a non US-citizen living outside US so they probably think its impossible for unschooling foreigners to attend college . I heard that U.S. unschoolers have gotten into college via homemade transcripts and good standardized test scores. Is this really true? And does this apply to international students like me? I posted a similar question on yahoo answers (probably a bad place to ask but I was feeling a bit desperate) and got this reply:
"If by "college," you mean yet another online/homeschool, then yes, plenty of US homeschoolers get in. However, if you are referring to a real school, then no, you are mistaken. Any respectable admissions committee will immediately throw out any application that doesn't contain a legitimate transcript backed by the oversight of a reputable accreditation agency.
Homeschooling is the worst thing you can do if you desire a future."
err ... I really want to unschool but will I be able to go to college? What other options are there?
