My son is a junior in high school and we attended a Tisch Drama info session last monday afternoon. The admissions guy told us that starting this fall the auditions will also probably include some kind of dance/movement component in addition to the monologues.
Today I happened on the NYU admissions website and see that they have changed the testing requirements for all students. I also spoke to a Tisch admissions officer to confirm this. Now, Tisch applicants will need to submit 2 subject tests (SAT IIs) in addition to the SATs. However, they also have the option of submitting 3 SAT IIs and no SAT, or the ACT ( with writing) alone, or the SAT and 2 AP tests or 3 AP tests.

I've been reading posts here for a while and you all have helped us enormously. Hope this info helps some other current high school juniors.
