About 200 Texas residents are admitted to TAMS each year. Admission is competitive, and students are selected from schools large and small, public and private, and from every region of the state. Successful applicants must present SAT scores, grades, and teacher references suggesting a capacity to succeed in college-level work. Computer programs or formulas are not used in student selection. Every applicant will be evaluated holistically, and no specific SAT score or grade average will guarantee admission. Aside from academic credentials, students will be judged on apparent maturity, motivation, behavioral record, and career interest. The TAMS Selection Committee is comprised of experienced individuals including alumni parents and representatives from academia and from scientific, mathematical, and engineering professions.
