    Self-studying for GED =/= home schooling.

    A GED is a very minimum requirement in the US. It's an alternative degree for kids who do not finish high school -- people who abandon school, go to jail, etc..

    It will not help you much in terms of admission to most US colleges. Your HS diploma from your Singapore HS is much more value. Stop studying for that GED. It's worthless
