    I received one last week for the second to last interview date. They may still be filling in the last few dates, so I wouldn't count yourself out yet!

    considering the school's last interview dates are mid december according to their website, then probably soon...very soon.. Probably could check the 17-18 pre-allo forum for a specific date.

    But last year they interviewed in January and this year they aren't, so they will probably stop sooner.

    Some of These invites were for mid December interviews. They need to have the prematch offers sent out and the students either accept/withdraw to get an idea of how many more invites to send out.

    UT Health East Texas in Tyler. The hospital was a large regional hospital that went broke and has recently been purchased and transformed into a UT hospital. It will get better over time but definitely can't compare to Austin just yet...

    Dang, if I don't get an II by the end of the week, I think I'm gonna cry. UTMB was one of my top choices and after emailing me regarding extra info they wanted from me (research interests, etc.), I got really hopeful.

    Where can we find our pre-matches for tomorrow? I know it is on the TMDSAS website, but under the section Pending Actions, I have: School Rank Preference and Pre-Match Offer Withdrawal. Is it under one of these or will a new section pop up? Also by what time will the results be posted?

    @farmmd There won't be anything like that on the TMDSAS site or portal.
    If a school offers you a spot during pre-match period November 15 to December 31, they will either email you with the news (most likely) or it will appear on the individual school portal. It will only be possible at schools where you have already interviewed.
    And if you have some interviews coming up before the end of December, you could get an offer after those.

    @NotTheOne that button might show up after you have had some interviews.
    It means nothing at this point.
    Don't click it though! You might use it later if you have had offers from several schools and you know a school is one you will be unlikely to attend, but I would advise keeping schools on your list until you do your match rank list and put the ones you like least at the bottom.

    Does anyone know if people who interviewed on 11/09 are eligible for a pre-match offer as soon as tomorrow? More specifically, did any other interviewees on 11/09 hear anything about this?

    Thanks

    If you are in-state, the first pre-matches will release Nov 15th and forward. For OOS, I believe they already began offering matches. But check on the UTMB website, the info and dates are on there.

    I'm IS. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough but I meant with my interview on 11/09 being so close to Nov 15th do you think they would have reviewed the interviewees and made a decision in that short of a time period?

    It’s plausible. But percentage-wise probably unlikely due to timing of interview and trends of prematches the past few years. You’re seeing the TMDSAS schools move toward a pattern of less and less Pre-Matches and just waiting for everyone to be sorted out by the Match system. Keep your head up, if you feel you did well on your interviews, you will have your day in the sun come Feb. 1st.

    So based on that logic, could you assume that earlier interview groups tend to have better chances of prematching? I feel like that isn't entirely true.

    Yes absolutelty. Not to say you CANT PreMatch after 11/15 (you totally can all the way upto 12/15), but based on past trends, the earlier the interview, the better the chance of a PreMatch offer.

    Is it common for schools to send out invites soon after prematch day?

    UTMB, Dell, and Baylor were the 3 schools that impressed me and felt like home on the interview trail.

    So far I was just given an email that says "Welcome to UTMB!" with a 2 slide powerpoint attached that says they sent an official letter by mail. Based on reading last year's thread, people were sent another email later that gives them access to a UTMB portal to accept/decline the offer. I'm assuming that will be the case again this year, but I suppose we'll find out more later.
