Or so says this:
I'm not sure whether it's true -- after all we never saw Madonna nervously shopping her stats around over on the What Are My Chances? board.
I wonder what the admission process was like for her. Perhaps she looked into the Ada Comstock program at Smith, designed for older women. Did she fret over LAC vs. research university? Did she apply for financial aid? I only regret that she didn't come on the Parents board to ask us what we thought of her essay.

And she's going to get her degree while working from home. Which means she won't avail herself of the wonderful lectures, libraries and coffee shops (pubs) near and around Oxford.

This article was in the SUN! A paper of ill-repute! If it's true, it wouldn't be in The Sun. But if I see her around Oxford, I will let you know.

Achat, she's MADONNA. She's done more now than most people do in their lifetimes. There's nothing she's missing out on.
But she's still a nut.

1) I wonder what her "hook" was!
2) Does any other Oxford student get a degree from at home study? Does not seem like one of those colleges with TV ads where you pick a field to study at home and earn your degree.....

She was a 4.0 student in school and was accepted into Michigan, so she certainly has the academic potential.

As far as I'm aware, no-one can do a standard Oxford undergraduate degree from home. There is some rule that all students have to live within 6 miles of Carfax tower (in the town centre) anyway so nearly everyone is resident. They do some online courses here http://www.online.ox.ac.uk/ but there is no English course. The online courses appear to be aimed at professionals who want to continue learning to help with their careers. Mostly computing courses.
