Schools have sent their college decisions. Now it is time for you to decide – fit and match. It’s a little more challenging this calendar year as you do not have the opportunity to attend admitted students day in person. Some schools such as University of North Carolina have set up virtual admissions programs to communicate with both admitted and prospective students. Your schools of interest may have done the same.

Note: The world is facing challenging times with the pandemic of COVID-19. I wish good health and well being to all.

You may not have access to a high school counselor as those in a brick and mortar school have. I have compiled these questions to consider based on twenty years of homeschooling and counseling other homeschooled families in my capacity as a reviewer for a homeschooling umbrella, a special needs/gifted learners consultant, and independent educational consultant.
