Evergreen ended up being a tougher school than I expected, but I learned an incredible ammount. In the end I graduated with real world skills that were immediately useful and had no trouble securing a good job. I worked my butt off in Evergreen, but that was because I was motivated by the great faculty and demanding, yet really interesting curriculum. This is a really different school with interdiciplinary courses. If you like to take one course at a time and prefer that the course be only on that subject, TESC probably would dissappoint you. If you like to know everything about a subject including how it influences or is influenced by other subjects, then you'll thrive at TESC. The facilities are first rate and access to high-end equipment is wonderful. You don't have to be a graduate student to be working with state of the art research equipment. Student to teacher ratio is also excellent. About the only negative is Olympia Wa, which is pretty quiet. But Seattle is only about an hour away and has lots to offer.
