his second year of dental school.
"If you're disciplined enough and your parents
are willing to put in the time, then homeschooling
is great. It really helped me to work at my own pace
and understand what I was learning," Cudney said.
There are many reasons why parents decide to
home school their kids, Cudney said. "Some people
do it because of religious beliefs, and others just
find it to be a better environment academically,"
Cudney said.
Sally Lindsley, associate director of undergradu-
ate admissions at the University, said the few home-
schooled applicants are carefully reviewed.
"Each home schooled student is individually
reviewed, but we generally have 15 to 25 applicants
a year that have had a variety of educational experi-
ences," Lindsley said.
the michigan daily

She also said she noticed a new trend in the home
schooled applicants.
"Most apply to LSA and the music school,
but recently we have had an increase in home
schooled applicants to our school of engineer-
ing," Lindsley said.
She added that many students coming to the
University after being home schooled have already
taken community college credits, which Lindsley
said admissions officers take into account in evalu-
ating their applications.
"If they're bringing in community college work
or math and science classes they took at an acad-
emy, we look to see where their strengths are. Oth-
erwise we use the SAT II's to help evaluate them,"
Lindsley said.
The national department of education reported
that nearly 2 million students nationwide are home
schooled.
Michigan has one of the highest rates of home

schooled students, perhaps because of its flexible laws
regarding who is eligible to teach their children.
While reaching high academic standards and
creating strong family ties, many of these students
also learn to interact with all different age groups,
as home schooled organizations allow them to meet
students like themselves and participate in different
sports and activities.
Still, Schreimer does not advocate that the system
for all, even though he said the process worked out
well for him. "It's not something everyone should
do; it depends on the individual and the family,"
he said.
Whether they decide to attend small religious col-
leges or big schools such as the University, these stu-
dents said they are determined to learn and do well.
And as Schreimer said, "There is no perfect school,
and home schooling is not perfect, but if you have
the right family who is willing to dedicate the time,
it's a great experience."

Show creator:
'Saved by Bell'
saved by wife

By Adrian Chen
Daily Staff Reporter

For an hour and a half yesterday,
students were able to return to the Sat-
urday mornings of their youth while
listening to "Saved by the Bell" creator
Peter Engel.
Engel, an Emmy Award nominated
producer who has worked for more
than 30 years in Hollywood, spoke
about the creation and success of the
high-school comedy show at Davidson
Hall last night.
The talk was sponsored by the

effort paid off. After the final cast was
set, "I knew we had lightning in the
bottle," he said.
At first, the show was lambasted
by critics. But after a few months
on the air, 50 percent of teenage girls
watching television in America were
glued to "Saved by the Bell," Engel
said.
In the process, Engel and his show
tapped into a market that he said had
never before been exploited: "tweens."
Tweens are part of a demographic -
highly coveted by advertisers - that
includes 9- to 12-year-olds. "Saved by

hasn't watched 'Saved by the Bell.' "
Engel called the start of his show "an
accident." He initially refused to do the
show because no producer had made a
live-action comedy show for Saturday
mornings, but his wife reminded him of
his desire to make a show for their own
kids to grow up with.
After making the difficult decision
to start the show, the next choice was
the title. Engel struck down some dubi-
ous options such as "When the Whistle
Blows," saying it sounded "too much like
construction." Eventually another acci-
dent - caused by an errant writer this
time - led to the name "Saved by the
Bell."
The long, uncertain process of cast-
ing followed. Although he had to sort
through hundreds of actors vying for
the show's main parts, Engel said the

shown in 85 countries throughout the
world, Engel said.
"The only thing the Middle East has
ever agreed on is='Saved by the Bell,'"
he joked, referring to the show's popu-
larity in Iraq, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Brigid Schmidt, a sophomore in the
LSA Film and Video Program, said she
was excited to see someone who has
succeeded in her desired career.
"I thought he was wonderful. I'm
a film major who wanted to see how
it was (in the industry), and he really
inspired me to keep going," she said.
Schmidt was an avid fan but especially
liked the episodes of the show that took
place on the beach.
As for Mironov, the episode "Jesse's
Song" - in which the title character
gets addicted to caffeine pills - was
his favorite.
