    Giving up TX residency?

    I have the option to establish my official residency in a new state. I'm thinking about doing so because I don't plan on applying to Texas medical schools (a mix of personal preference and spousal duties). I want to end up in the Midwest for medical school and beyond, and I'm worried that the...

    Hi everyone, I’m at a crossroads and could use advice! So far UTSW has given me a competitive scholarship and so it would be the cheapest option, however when I toured the school I was just not impressed with the overall vibe. I enjoyed TWU-Houston much more. Is this a silly reason to chose a...

    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
