Chelsea Link says this about her extraordinary, yet relaxed, life: “I think I’ve had a pretty normal high school experience . . . just without the high school.”
Another interesting quote by Christopher Watson, admissions dean at Northwestern, “We haven’t changed the way we review applications, but the way home-schoolers are submitting applications has changed,” he said. “They’ve become very good at taking out the question marks.”
Perhaps it’s a combination of the two? Northwestern may not have changed it’s admissions process, but other universities have.
Congratulations Chelsea! Reading science magazines and playing music is a fine way to go through childhood.
