College Acceptance

College Admissions - Diversity

The Trump administration will encourage the nation’s school superintendents and college presidents to adopt race-blind admissions standards, abandoning an Obama administration policy that called on universities to consider race as a factor in diversifying their campuses, Trump administration officials said.

The reversal would restore the policy set during President George W. Bush’s administration, when officials told schools that it “strongly encourages the use of race-neutral methods” for admitting students to college.

Top Ten Most Difficult Colleges To Gain Acceptance

Stanford - 4.8%
Harvard - 6%
Yale - 6.3%
Columbia - 7%
Alice Lloyd - 7%
Princeton - 7.4%
MIT - 7.9%
US Naval Academy - 7.9%
University of Chicago - 8%
Brown University - 9%

West Point

Many people believe you only learn military skills at the United States Military Academy – but this just isn’t true! Undergraduates are all given the opportunity to work towards a Bachelor of Science degree alongside their military leadership skills. The College is often called West Point and accepts both men and women. However, it’s not easy to get in, with the United States Military Academy only accepting 9.5% of their applicants each academic year.

Dean Scholarship - TCU Honors

Senior Accepted with $18K Dean Scholarship to TCU Honors!

Former Timarron student and Southlake Carroll Senior, Craig Miller, has earned the TCU Dean’s Scholarship of $18,000 annually and will be attending TCU as an honors student. Mom Cindy says that “it’s all thanks to his ACT score and GPA.” Craig recounts, “I improved my overall ACT composite score by five points on my second try with a 34 in Math and a 33 in Science. Thank you Bobbie and Timarron College Prep!”

By attending TCU, Craig continues a proud family tradition, following his father and uncle’s footsteps. Mom says “this school is the perfect fit for him both academically and in spirit . . . we’re all bleeding purple over here! Way to go Frogs!” Through the honors program, Craig will be paired up with his college professors to do research during his last years at TCU. His major of choice is Finance, possibly followed up by an MBA or a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program.

Craig is a Southlake resident and the son of Cindy and Blake Miller. His extra-curricular activities include Play it Forward, Scholars & Athletes Serving Others (SASO), Peer Assistance & Leadership (PALs), National Honors Society, and the National Society of High School Scholars. “We will miss him while he’s away, but we couldn’t be happier with Craig’s college choice!”
