    Rejected. Obviously disappointing but I don't feel too bad. Made my decision for the summer a lot easier! ;)
    A huge congratulations to everyone who was accepted — I hope you have an amazing experience... make the most of it!

    Hi guys! I have a question about TASP that hopefully you may all answer (didn't apply this year as I'm not a junior): TASP FAQ states that if you get accepted, you *must* attend the whole program, no coming late or leaving early. Is this strictly enforced? I have other extracurricular activities that I want to pursue, but the time coincides :(

    I haven't even gone yet, but I really think that they do enforce it. You have to live on a university campus and depending on where you live you'll be states away from home. Plus, I'd imagine at a thing like TASP you can't really drop out of class for two days and come back expecting to be on top of things.

    @MonaLon Wow did you get accepted? Congrats!
    I meant perhaps attending later, not leaving in the middle and coming back; but I do see your point: TASP is so prestigious you would be out of your mind to not go the whole duration (oops).

    Dear previous TASPers: I plan on applying this year, and I just have a question about the timeline. I see that we are notified about interview status early march and a transcript/letter of recommendation is needed; when is the transcript/letter due? My school has a 3 week policy for letters of recommendation, and transcripts also take that long to process. I worry about there not being enough time.
    Thank you!
