    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at TFA in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview and final interview. Applied at top university. Apply early, because I felt I was a strong applicant (definitely stronger and more prepared than other people I know who were accepted). There is a TFA interview book out there that is helpful. You have to be committed to the cause.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at TFA in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The TFA interview process is extremely rigorous. I think that one must keep in mind that many really qualified (and, over-qualified) people are also applying for the same position you are. What that means is that, you may think you are the best candidate from your university or from the actual day-interview, but there are MANY other candidates you are unaware of interviewing all across the country. Be as prepared as possible and hope that you "above" the competition, so to speak. (I'm also implying that since it is so competitive, do not get discouraged if you are not chosen. It may simply be a result of not enough positions.)
