from U Penn

Dear Ms. LaMai,

Thank you for your message. Although we do not receive many applications from home-schooled students, the numbers are rising each year. This year less than 1% of our freshmen class self-identified as home-schooled students.

We recommend that a home-schooled applicant provides as much information about their curriculum, grading, mode of instruction, and reasons for choosing home-schooling. We also prefer to see letters of recommendation from non-family members. Ideally, letters from private tutors or college professors provide a more objective perspective on the student’s abilities.

I hope this information is helpful.
