An unsolicited letter:

"As parents, we have had mixed emotions about turning a 16 year-old girl 'loose' on a college campus three hundred miles from home. We came away from Preview Day more convinced than ever that the TAMS experience would be a rich, rewarding, positive one for our daughter and for the rest of our family."


Spend A Day

In addition to Preview Days, the Academy Ambassadors encourage prospective students to shadow TAMSters through a full day of classes, meals, and recreation. To participate, contact the Admissions Office (1-800-241-TAMS) for referral to a student Ambassador. Please note that Spend-A-Days are on the day preceding each Preview and Interview Day. Please allow 7 to 10 days notice to arrange for Spend-A-Day.

Interview Day

Interviews are by invitation only. At least one parent or legal guardian is asked to accompany each applicant for moral support and to gather details about financial aid, the curriculum, and residence hall life. Meanwhile, prospective students will interview and take two multiple-choice examinations covering Algebra I and II. Calculators will not be allowed. Sample tests with answers will have been mailed to interviewees in advance.

Another unsolicited letter:

"TAMS was a wonderful experience for our daughter. Frankly, I don't know what we would have done without it. Early admission to UT Austin would not have been an equal alternative. Emily is very successful and happy at Stanford University."
