@SOM Admissions Will TCU/UNTHSC follow the TMDSAS rule "After 5:00 pm CT on May 15, 2019, no medical school in Texas may offer a position to an applicant already accepted by another medical school in Texas.  This is the result of an agreement among the six UT System Medical Schools, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M HSC College of Medicine, Texas Tech University HSC School of Medicine, Texas Tech University HSC Paul L. Foster School of Medicine at El Paso and UNT-Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine."?

Per AAMC protocols, schools are advised to not force students to choose a final school until (at least) 21-days ahead of that schools' start date. We are using June 1 as our deadline.

We follow the AAMC AMCAS protocols: if a student has made the "commitment to enroll" on the Choose Your Medical School tool, this means they should have removed their position from other schools' waitlists; therefore, they will no longer be in our alternate pool. If you do not remove yourself from the pool and we see that you have indicated a "commit to enroll" to any school (Texas or others), we will remove you from our waitlist.

To hold an offer and remain on a waitlist (and therefore remain eligible for another offer), you should mark "plan to enroll."

Has anyone tried to request an extension to the June 1st CTE deadline here? If so, how did you do so?
I don’t understand your quandary, @hiraeth9 . At the deadline you make your decision with the information you have at that time.
Don’t lose a yes for a maybe!

Edited to add: look at the May 3 post by SOM Adcoms on this issue
