TASP 2019

IllimanipIllimanip 2 replies2 threads New Member
Hey guys!

I'm starting a new thread for people applying to the TASP program in 2019, seeing how applications are out and nobody has made one yet.

I'm applying for it myself, and I was hoping to create a place for other applicants to talk and discuss. :)

    Hey!
    I just found out about TASP yesterday, and applied on the spot. It took me a few hours - feels like a new essay writing record. The questions were really inspiring and I just wrote freely, haha. :))

    I don't know if that was the best decision, but I had fun writing those essays - if I don't get in, I still got something out of the process. [-O< I do hope I at least make it to interviews though.

    I'll start it off. For the short answer question where it asks for a list of your favorite books, movies, etc. do they want just a list of the names or the names with a small sentence about why you like that particular thing?

    @emmm16 I applied to TASS last year and only listed the names and authors/artists/directors, so I don't think you need to explain any further

    Any examples of successful TASP essays previous TASPers are willing to share?

    Also, are the people there super intellectual? I'm not very caught up on modern day social issues or intellectual issues, will that be a problem?

    Is there any projects/grades/courses or do you just attend lectures and organize activities?

    @emmm16 We stayed in a separate house-type of thing. It depends on year. Honestly, just know that you will only be with TASPers and no one else really :D

    @5toryt3ll3r I just finished watching your video and it was sooo helpful. I loved your unique writing style and personal anecdotes. What did you think of the seminar itself and what was the tasp community like?

    @emmm16 ahh i'm so glad to hear it ! i might try actually growing this channel to help people applying to all this stuff, so if it wouldn't be too much trouble, would you mind commenting that on the video? :p thank you either way!!

    the seminar was amazing! it's three hours every morning, 9-12. mine was on creative writing, so it was pretty workshoppy, and we'd always do writing exercises and then share if we felt comfortable. the teachers were quite young and we all idolized them; they were just insanely cool. we did some really interesting exercises that i'd never done before, like going into small groups to enact a scene from a book we were reading in tableau and then analyzing how we ourselves and the other groups had physically embodied the themes, both intentionally and unintentionally.

    the tasp community was really interesting too. i'm not gonna lie, sometimes i got really tired on sunday nights when we got down to business on all the self-governing stuff and people brought a lot of suggestions to the table, but it was so autonomous in a way that you aren't going to get anywhere else. even if you don't click with absolutely everyone in the group, i can guarantee you'll find at least a few people with whom you'll be close-knit, and my favorite part was that we could have philosophical discussions and also be total goofballs. if i've left anything out, i actually just put up a blog post on this, so it'd be in there! https://www.myivyeducation.org/single-post/2018/11/21/The-Telluride-Association-Summer-Program-Countdown-to-Summer hopefully this has been sufficiently thorough though XD
