Is there college after homeschooling? ;)

I know it is possible to go to college after homeschooling.
What I am interested in is how it works out in real life.
Does anyone here have such an experience?
What can you tell about it?
Any tips or advice perhaps?
Thank you very much ;)a

  1. I have no personal experience, but a friend of mine took college after homeschooling and did not tell me about any troubles.
    I also know about a guy, who won’t leave for college because it’s so much better at home with his mom cooking for him and cleaning the place.
    I mean, it’s not like he is afraid of any issues, it’s because he’s too comfortable.
    I don’t think that’s the right thing to do. College offers great opportunities and experience, and even if you need some time to adjust, it’s worth it.
    In my opinion 🙂

  2. I have no real experience with homeschooled kids, but I think they tend to stay too much in their rooms. College is not only about studying!
    There are so many opportunities to socialize and find friends!
    I would suggest that you find people with similar interests so that you do not miss out what the college has to offer.

  3. Studying is pretty much the same everywhere: you need to be disciplined, to study hard, to know something about time management, and that’s probably it.
    I mean, if you are a good student and know how to learn, you should be ready for the college, and it doesn’t matter if you are homeschooling or going to a public school.
    Just do you job and there won’t be any problems.

  4. My brother studies for his Master degree, and as far as I know there were no particular problems, definitely not with the transition.

    Also, it did not seem to me that he had problems with fitting.

    And he definitely performs well, so no difficulty in the studies as such.

  5. It felt a bit different… well, not exactly a bit, to be frank, because there are the environment and people, but you get used to it soon.

  6. My daughter did well, I don’t think she experienced any SPECIAL difficulties as a former homeschooler. Nothing she’d care to tell me about.
