I am a Taiwanese student who've studied in English since Grade 3 (in Singapore) then began homeschooling in 9th Grade. I recently took my SAT I and scored 1400: 690V and 710M. Which colleges should I apply to? I'm very interested in Literature and English, and would like to find a college that has strong liberal arts department and also emphasizes interaction and support among professors and students.
Here are some of my stats:
GPA: 3.93 (on 4.0 scale)
SAT 1: 1400
SAT II: Planning on taking Writing, Literature, and Maths IC
Extracurriculum Activities: Writing (Columnist), Public Speaking (Translator, Speaker, Presenter), Bible Study Group Leader/Teacher, Religious Activities, Art Design etc.
College Interests: Yale (1st choice!!), UC Berkeley, U Penn, Stanford, UT Dallas, Cornell, U of Southern C, Amherst...
Which ones do you recommend and which one do you discourage me from attending?
Also, I'm wheelchair bound because of muscular dystrophy. How friendly are the campuses and other services?

You may want to post this on another thread, not a lot of people read this thread.

all US colleges now have experience with homeschoolers. It's become almost a non-issue. I think your big issue is which colleges are going to be the most wheel-chair friendly or have services you might need. Start there, then look for schools that match your academic needs. Then look at schools which are friendly for foreigners (esp if you need financial aid). Only then should you even think about how the homeschooling fits in. It's the least of your issues.
