After you sign up on SignupGenius, when do you get the email for the link of the virtual interview?
Make sure to check your spam folder, that's where mine was about 7-10 days before my interview. If you still can't find it, just email the admissions office!

I was just accepted to TCOM! I'm an OOS student and have also been accepted to A&M. I know that for AMCAS I am able to hold multiple acceptances and just have to withdraw from all but one by April 30th, is the same true for OOS students and Texas schools? I know in-state students can't hold multiple offers after the match? (I might be wrong there but I wasn't part of the match). TCOM told me I have two weeks to accept their offer, does that mean that I have to decide between them and A&M in the next two weeks or can I accept both offers and consider for a bit longer? I tried to find the answer to this on TMDSAS' website but this is confusing and seems to be contradictory. Can anyone help?

You can also accept TCOM and have some time to think about the two schools. Try to make your decision by April or so.

Will there be more pre-matches to come or do they just send them on one day of the month? Would it be wise to send a letter of interest to them?

Prematch for texas residents ends January 29th so you could theoretically hear before then
So if we do not hear back before January 29th as a TX resident, does that mean there are no more acceptances except being waitlisted? Or will there be a match on March 5th?

Match Day is March 5 and you have a chance to match if you have had interviews. If you end up without a match (it does happen) you could be offered a spot on a WL and have your chance to be accepted from the WL between March and the start of orientation at school.

Do we think TCOM is pretty much done giving out II’s at this point? Pretty bummed. Really wanted to go here, and it’s the only school that would allow my significant other to keep his job since we currently live in the area :(

Anyone from the current MedSci class get acceptances yet? Wondering if they'll wait until March 5th for MedSci or if they've sent out some answers.

Sorry for so many questions... but the application page says that they won't send acceptance offers for residents between Jan 29- March 4, and they anticipate the class to be filled by March 5. So does this mean that there is barely any possibility to match on match day as they are pre-match heavy?

The end of Jan is the cutoff for prematch offers. After that you wait for match day. There is still a chance to match

Super bummed, too. I love TCOM and my mentor attended there and had nothing but good things to say. Plus, she was one of the best doctors I have ever worked with and had a phenomenal bedside manner. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone :(. Hope that things will work out well for us at the end of the day,though!

Thanks for the reply. Wishing you the best of luck! I hope another school worked out for you!

Received an interview invite Friday 1/15 and scheduled my interview for this coming Friday 1/22. Available dates were 1/19, 1/22, 1/26 and 1/29. If you are still waiting on an interview there is still hope! Quick one week turnaround for mine, so theoretically they could send an invite this week for someone to interview next week

Primary submitted 6/15, TCOM secondary submitted 9/6, LM 70, in state
