AP: CNN: Some colleges courting home-schoolers in quest for best students
AP: Yahoo: Colleges coveting home-schooled students

The article mentions one of my sisters! Of course, they misspelled her last name once, but oh well Razz

Magdalene Pride, a first-year Columbia College student, was a beneficiary of the school's aggressive recruitment of home-schoolers.

After earning more than 50 credit hours through a combination of community college classes near her suburban St. Louis home and online Advanced Placement course, Price was awarded a four-year scholarship to Columbia College that covers the school's $12,414 annual tuition.
