So, I think that it would be most appropriate to start with the situation that I have been trying to figure out.
I have technically never been in high school. I was supposed to be part of class of 2024 in my local highschool, but covid hit before I could enter. My parents got the horrible idea of putting me into a homeschool course that wasn't accredited (or recognized by the state for all that I know). This lead me to essentially dropping out of formal education for about six months until early spring, sometime last year.
At around that time, I decided to leave the homeschooling course and take matters into my own hands. I decided to register into a ged program that is held by a local adult learning center. I have tested through two sections of the GED, scoring into the highest category that a student can, which is college ready with credits.
Is there anything else that I could do to improve my options and chances into getting accepted into a college besides scoring well on the GED, SAT, and maybe even the ACT?
Creating a solid list of extracurriculars is one major thing you could do to improve your chances. Having 10 activities in total is a good goal to have. Some of them should relate to your spike, and as many as possible should be Tier 1 or 2. Activities done on your own or outside of a high school environment look just as good as in-school clubs. Hope this helps!
