Hi, I scored a 226 index on my PSAT, and am expecting to be a semifinalist. Has anyone out there gone through the semifinalist to finalist process, and have there been any problems for homeschoolers?
Would they regard homeschool grade reports as unreliable?
I scored a 1430 and a 1510 on the SAT.

I got a 217 on the PSAT in Pennsylvania, made the cut for semi-finalist, made finalist, and I just got scholar standing.....it seems that the most important factor in going from semi-finalist to finalist is your SAT's....mine were 1540...after your reach finalist status, you will be given a form to fill out...they ask for a 500 word personal essay, a teacher recommendation, and your grades..i submitted my grades, and my father wrote up a summary of each "course" that i took including a book list, the books that were used in each "course" etc..however, i had a really really good recommendation from a teacher (who said that I was one of the smartest studnets he had had in 50 years of tecahing) and my personal essay was edited by a journalist for the Philadfelphia Inquirer, so you can take my case however you want...i think that you have a great chance....on a side note, i also listed the teaching credentails of my homecshooling father (he was a prof. at the Univ of Michigan) there are no set guiderules....if you ask them, they will tell you that if you attach any sheets to the application, they will be thrown out..however, i did anyway, and i don't think that it hurt me
