Is it true that homeschool students have to jump through extra hoops when they apply to college? This week I’m chatting with Lori Dunlap, writer, education consultant and founder of teachyourown.org. Lori is an expert on homeschooling through high school and the college admissions process. We discuss what admissions officers look for in applicants, how parents can prepare their kids for the application process and the importance of reaching out to experts and seeking out advice.
Lori has distilled her knowledge and research into a comprehensive book for homeschool families: From Home Education to Higher Education: A Guide for Recruiting, Assessing, and Supporting Homeschooled Applicants
Each week, our Founder, Jordan Schanda chats with #collegeprepgurus about planning for college, building a resume, preparing for the ACT and SAT, writing essays, winning scholarships, navigating financial aid and so much more!
Tune in every Wednesday and hear it from the experts!

Looking for more college and scholarship tips and advice?
Chances are, if you’re like the parents I’ve worked with, you have the desire to help your child succeed but you’re struggling with where to start! You want to do everything in your power to make sure they can afford the college of their dreams, but the amount of information out there is downright overwhelming! What you need is someone to show you a tested step-by-step process to get prepared early, rather than scrambling at application time.
I’m Jordan… and that’s exactly what I do.
I built ScholarPrep based on my own experience applying for college and securing as many scholarships as possible. Through lots of hard work I was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000. Knowing my brother was not that type of student, my mom and I carefully outlined and documented the process that had worked so successfully for me. Since we started, we’ve helped students across the country create competitive applications, get into their top choice school and win scholarships to pay for their education.
