Applying to Taylor was actually a last-minute decision forAug 01 2014Art & Design Department
Applying to Taylor was actually a last-minute decision for me. I didn't even visit it until after I was accepted (yes, that's weird and stressful; I don't recommend it). The application was easy enough; just a bunch of questions to answer, an essay to write, some recommendations to submit, and sending in my transcript. Because I was home-schooled, I also had to send a document that detailed all of the classes I took in high school. I got good scores on the SAT and ACT and had good grades in high school, so the whole application process really wasn't stressful at all for me. When I finally visited the campus, all I had to do was decide if I wanted to go there, because I was already accepted and the "interview" I had with an admissions counselor was basically my mom and I interviewing her about Taylor.
To get into Taylor, I would recommend that a student do his or her best in high school and score well on the ACT and SAT. Obviously, those aren't the only things they look at, but there's also the fact that Taylor is a relatively expensive private school, and good grades/test scores mean merit scholarships. Demonstrating that one is a service-oriented individual probably doesn't hurt, either.

Check out the dorms and their "atmospheres". Dorms are very important to the community and a lot of your success will depend on that. You are expected to become close to the people on your floor/wing.
