from Wellesley College

Hello LaMai,

I hope that this email finds you well. Each year about less than 1% of
our applicant pool are students who have been homeschooled, and there are
a number of those students who do choose to matriculate at Wellesley.
There are no specific policies governing the application process for
students who have chosen homeschooling. You and your parents need to
research the best way for you to build academic skills which are
equivalent to those established through traditional, well rounded high
school curricula leading to a liberal arts education. You will need to
take the required standardized tests (currently the ACT, or the SAT I and
three SAT II’s) and need to develop both verbal and mathematical skills.
When it becomes time for you to apply for admission, you will need to
document your academic accomplishments. You will submit a record based on
your work, such as a bibliography of what you have read or examples of the
courses of study you have pursued. Since homeschoolers choose diverse
ways to develop and augment the curriculum they design, what you submit
will show your proficiency and your unique strengths. Each year the Board
of Admission does receive and assess applications from homeschooled
students. Some of these students have gone on to become very successful
at Wellesley.

If you have any futher questions, please feel free to respond to the email
or call me at XXX.XXX.XXXX.

Sincerley,
Niceee Admissions Guy '00
Sr. Assistant Director
