What do Universities like or dislike?





In my school district, we don't get physical high school diplomas if we graduate high school as a home schooled student. I'm currently a "normal" high school student, but I'm thinking of switching over to home schooling for my senior year because I have way too many credits (we need 24 to graduate, I've got about 28 and I'm half way through Sophomore year) and being a home schooled student would let me travel abroad and do some other things that most students would do in a year between High School and College life. I want to go to Brown, and apart from all of the usual things (test scores, grades, attendance, references, essay), do I have anything extra I should look out for? Something that might throw me under the bus?Weighted GPA - 4.65ACT - 36SAT1600 - 1580SAT2400 - 2400Loads of extra curricular activities (yearbook editor, swim team captain, etc.)
