who out there homeschooled in high school and got into college?

Hello, Have any of you been homeschooled in high school, and then went on to apply for college? I'm looking for details on how you applied for college, that is, did you take the ACT or SAT and how did that go for you? Did you dual enroll, so that the colleges could see some actual grades, or did you just send in a portfolio with lists of books you read, book reports, or essays you wrote? [more inside]

What are my chances of getting into a graduate program?

I have an bachelors degree is business but want to get my masters in education. I'm applying to Hunter College's School of Education in NYC. What are my chances if I do not meet the admissions requirements for an undergraduate major in liberal arts or science. This is a link to the admissions requirements page: In general, what are the chances of getting into a graduate program? What do admissions look for when selecting prospective students? Are Hunter's graduate programs for education competitive to get into? Can I lower my chances of getting acceptance if I submit my application too close to the deadline?

Multiple admission to San Francisco Strip Clubs

SF Strip Clubs. A number of the North Beach strip clubs are owned by or affiliated with Deja Vu (NSFW). Is there a ticket/wristband available for purchase that gives you access to some or all of the Deja Vu clubs for the evening? I've seen the concept referenced in this Yelp review, but have been unable to find further information. Does anyone know anything more about a single price/multiple admission pass?
