    Texas Dental Schools OOS

    When do Texas schools stop giving out interview invites? Also, do OOS schools consider Texas residents?

    Is it too late to apply TMDSAS? I am OOS with no ties.

    I'm a CA resident, female, ORM. Decently high stats -- 517 and 3.84 GPA, ~3.75 sGPA. But since TMDSAS don't see grades as +/-, I think my GPA would go up in their eyes because I have quite a few A-'s that would translate as regular A's in their system. Is it too late to apply to TMDSAS? Thank you
