Good News on the College Admissions Front

The Washington Post this morning has a surprisingly positive article on how colleges are evaluating homeschoolers' records. The best news, to many homeschoolers, is buried in the middle of the article:

Colleges are finding ways to adapt to the growing market. Eighty-three percent had formal policies for evaluating the home-schooled in 2004, up from 52 percent in 2000, according to the National Association for College Admission Counseling. Many rely on standardized tests.

Eighty-three percent of colleges, up from only 52 percent, in just four years! And that was three years ago; at that rate, almost all colleges will soon have formal policies in place. That means great news for homeschooled students, who have long feared that homeschooling high school would make it difficult for them to get into college.
