    It looks that way for me too. I actually took a "just in case" screenshot after submitting and it says "this page will no longer be accesible after the deadline has passed" so I wouldn't worry about it!

    Don’t worry, y’all, you will next see your results on the TMDSAS portal on Feb 1.

    Two questions:
    1. On my student portal, under to-do list, it says for me to submit my transcripts by 2/15. Is this the actual deadline? I won't know for sure if I'll end up here until after match day so that seems a little early to have transcripts sent in.
    2. Does financial aid info only come in after match day?

    1. All TMDSAS schools want to see your Fall transcript if you are still a student. Send one official transcript to TMDSAS and they will distribute it to all your schools.
    1.b. after committing to one school they will want your final college transcript and will tell you where to send it.
    2. Some schools tell you about scholarships at the time of their admissions offer, but I think UTMB waits till later.

    Is it true, no acceptances for MCAT less than 505?

    Would greatly appreciate if any OOS acceptance is out there to post letting folks know that this is happening too, along with the match

    @TheGirlWhoWaited I know you have been up all night and are anxious and hyper, but why at this point in the game ask every single person their stats when they get accepted? Don't be that person o_O.
    If you click on a member's name you will see number of messages they have posted, click on that number and you can see all their messages. Usually somewhere in there you will see their stats. You're welcome. And good luck at 8am!

    I had below a 505 when I originally got my interview invite (early August) but my second score was above a 505 (new score came in mid August) and I prematched in November

    For those who didn’t match, does anyone know about when a waitlist or rejection notification will be sent?

    Matched today. I really thought the interviews went badly but I guess it's true we tend to misjudge how well our interviews went. (portal + email fwiw)

    Not entirely sure if the school makes a class of 2023 fb page or not but I made one that could serve as either the official one or a temporary one! Super excited to meet everyone!!! Here is the link to the page!

    Do yall know if accepting a position in UTMB through mySTAR prevents you from being able to get in off the waitlist from any other schools?

    Were we supposed to receive a login to myStar at some point? I got accepted and got the email but have never gotten a login to the online portal....

    You can accept this offer, and you can still at a later date accept an offer from another school's Wait List.
    If another school offers you a spot from their Waitlist later on, you may:
    a. accept it
    b. politely decline it if you are happier with your current placement.

    If you do accept a Waitlist offer, you should next politely email the school where you had a spot originally and say that you have decided to accept an offer from a different medical school, thank them, and say that you will be withdrawing from their class.

    Don't worry @bulbosaur, you will get more information in your packet in the US mail and there is time to set up the mySTAR account. If they have instructed you to accept via mySTAR but you don't have a login, call them on Monday.

    As far as I know they haven't asked to accept through mySTAR. Their website does say though that the applicant account gets disabled and they make a new one for matriculants (or something along those lines). The mail they sent was quite brief so I don't know for sure, but I'll just wait for the mailed information...Thank you for help!

    Congrats to everyone who matched, either to UTMB or elsewhere! The Class of 2023 Facebook group page is made by Class Officers (current UTMB Students) for the incoming class, so the official page should be up sometime this week! In the meantime, be sure to set up your mySTAR account and UTMB email address as these options become available to you.

    To those still waiting to hear back, just like many other Texas Medical Schools, UTMB also has waitlist movement, so stay strong!
