    Default Just to get on the Waiting List?!

    A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to go to this really special school called a Governor's School (Graduate from it and you pretty much write your own ticket into college). This particular one specializes in arts and technology, right up my alley. Unfortunately being homeschooled has become a downfall. Since we don't subscribe to the local paper and I don't hear school announcements, I had no way of knowing the final deadline for applications was December 1 (This is applications for next school year, mind you.). Now if I even want a chance to get in (and this is the only thing I can do at all, really) my mom has to write an appeal tonight, send it to the Gifted Coordinator who'll forward it to the super, who will decide if I have a case. If so it gets sent back to the coordinator and I'm on the waiting list. All that just for the waiting list. That's not the worst of it.

    They're only letting in 2 kids in this area this year. Of the 6 that applied, 2 will get in. The only chance anyone on the waiting list will have is if someone decides they don't really want to go to the school or if someone transfers out. Next year is even worse, if I decide to try it then. Next year, 1 kid will be let in. That's it.

    I just had to rant. Being homeschooled really sucks this year, all around.

    Its a rare occurance that homeschooling would suck. Hopefully, some sort of miraculous event happens and you get in.

    It's not so rare to me. Language Arts, I read. Mom can't afford my work book so I read. History, I read more, because that's what I always do. Science is nonexistant this year, home ec down the drain, and math is my worst enemy.
    So yes, homeschooling does indeed suck for me.

    Art is the one thing I enjoy and that's what this high school focuses on, but I've gotta jump through hoops for the freakin' waiting list.

    being in homeschool should be a benefit for this because you have to have good grades to get in stuff like this since its NERDSCHOOL and im pretty sure its impossible to get less than straight As in homeschool

    Walrus: I was homeschooled because of religious stuff. I've actually never been to a public school, but this school sounds like the perfect place for me if I could just get in.

    God: Actually, no. I might not get report cards but my tests are graded and I've gotten a D before. Of course I have no idea where I stand as of last year/this year because the tests are just sitting in a pile, but it's prolly okay since I already know everything I've been learning so far.

    I was asking about you earlier How've you been?

    It sucks to hear that about your school- what you guys don't realize is that she's still probably victim to standardized testing- if she doesn't learn what you learn, she'll have a hard time even grabbing a GED.
