If you scored above the 95th percentile SAT choose another college to avoid daily mind numbing discussions. Your "class" is assembled chaotically; You will suffer the same set of students through six of seven courses.

A then current student with whom I was acquaintedNov 20 2012Religion/Religious
A then current student with whom I was acquainted told me he thought TAC would be a good fit for me and contacted the Dean of admissions on my behalf. The admission process was wonderful: I interviewed late in the admissions cycle but a personal interview was arranged quickly. The
questions put to me were practical and thoughtful. The students at TAC need to have some particular reason why they think they will benefit from this particular program. I knew only the basics about the program but wasn't made to feel deficient about this lack of detailed knowledge. The
essays were general enough to give a sense of who I was and my suitability for this curriculum. The admissions staff was always available and didn't play any head games with me. Financial aid was sufficient to keep my focus where it should be: on the program.

If you're not sure about whether this is theOct 22 2007Philosophy
If you're not sure about whether this is the school for you, definitely go to the high school summer program. You will gain valuable experience about the kind of life students live and the academics at the school which can help you make your decision. Visit the campus. Talk things over with students there - they will help you put things in perspective. Also, talk things over with the admissions staff. They can be really helpful.

Applicants should become familier with the very different kindSep 13 2006Other
Applicants should become familier with the very different kind of program here, and be honest on their application essays about why they want to pursue this kind of education. Check it out. If you're interested in finding truth, you'll be happy here.

I went to the summer program, although they sayJul 26 2006Other
I went to the summer program, although they say that that doesn't really effect their decision, it doesn't hurt, and you can see if this is really what you want to do for the next four years.

I went to a classical high school so they knew I could do the program. If I didn't do that, I would do something with debate or mock trial or something to show that you have ideas and think for yourself.

The best thing was the teacher recomendations I got from two TAC grads. They knew the program and what it would entail and they said that I could pass it with flying colors. So if you know a TAC grad, get them to write a recomendation.

Apply early (I applied in December). Write all the essays. Have fun. It's worth everything you go through to get here.
