@SOM Admissions Will your team be providing an academic profile for the class soon so that those of us considering re-applying to your school can better make that decision, as well as number of applications you received (both primary and secondary)? And will that be on here or just reported to AAMC and accessible via MSAR?

Thanks.

I'm sure we can post here, too.

I forgot to ask during interview day, but did anyone question whether or not laptops or a tablet would be provided with tuition?

The School of Medicine will provide hardware/software requirements for personal purchase of a machine - the cost of a machine is included in the "cost of attendance - books and supplies" for MS1 year-only. But it is on you to purchase (we do not provide).

Sorry to hear that! It's been a long journey thus far, best of luck in the future.
Thanks! I got my first acceptance earlier in the week at a school I'm starting to love, so it's no big deal anyway. Whoever goes here will have a great education.

Apparently Fort Worth is Cowboys territory too, so.......

I wonder how large the waitlist is...
I can only assume it is very large. Given it's a first year program, the price, and the fact that many acceptances we're likely OOS students with other acceptances, I'm sure they are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

And also many accepted Texans with cheaper tuition as well.... praying for that A though, I fell in love with fort worth and this program

Hey everyone, I just wanted to ask if you guys could give me your reasons for wanting to go to TCU, regardless of whether you are weighing other acceptances or not. Feel free to ignore if it is too personal, I just wanted to see what people's thoughts as I make my final decision. Thank you!

Question: if we are on the alternate list, are we allowed to apply this upcoming cycle (while being on the alternate list)? (May 1 for TMDSAS and June 1 for AMCAS)

It’s absolutely allowed and highly recommended that you have your next cycle prepared with as much energy as possible. For anyone reapplying, give your ENTIRE application a fresh look, seek updated letters, revise your essay — do not submit the same application as you did this year and expect different outcomes.

I know that some medical schools give rejected/waitlisted applicants feedback on their application if they have an unsuccessful cycle and need to reapply. I'm wondering, is TCU/UNTHSC SOM receptive to giving such feedback? Additionally, I know that interviewees were discouraged from sending update letters, but I'm wondering whether waitlisted applicants can send in updates/letters of interest/intent? @SOM Admissions

I would like to know the latter question as well.

@SOM Admissions Will wait-listed applicants who are eventually accepted have the opportunity to attend an accepted students day before making the decision to attend? I would have liked to tour the school and maybe attend more info sessions at the interview day, and I feel like I will be kind of in the dark if I am eventually given the opportunity to make the decision to attend or not.

Great question and we schedule a revisit by request. We do not duplicate the same program that was offered during Second Look Weekend (last week), but are sure to provide the pertinent details that impact decision-making.
