Most of the TMDSAS schools will send out their first acceptance offers in October and then about once a month after that until Jan 31.New to the whole interviewing thing, anyone know how long Texas schools typically take to send out acceptance/rejection news post-interview?
Double check to make sure you released your MCAT score report to TMDSAS - you have to do this on the MCAT portal.Hello! I submitted secondaries end of June then sent in my new MCAT score end of July but have not gotten any interviews yet. I'm a little worried my app was rejected before I sent in my new score. Is there anything I can do?
lots more interview chances remain, hang in thereI applied to all the TMDSAS schools, and had all my secondaries submitted by 07/15 but I have not interviews yet. I even applied to 20 more AMCAS schools, which I submitted by late August as I was processed later, but yet still nothing. Should I start panicking now since prematch rolled out? I am worrying as some some schools have filled up interview slots through December, and I believed I was a fairly competitive applicant
Is it possible to send update letters to schools?
Yes, you can. Congrats! But you have to decide & narrow it down to 1 school by April 30, just like in AMCAS.Can Out of State students accept multiple offers from TX schools? I could not find anything on the TMDSAS website talking about this. The schools so far have just said "you have 2 weeks to decide" but nothing about commitment.
I applied in Early October. Based on the rolling admissions schedule, is it possible to be considered for an interview?**##**##** Deadline reminders **##**##**
Final deadline for submitting your TMDSAS PRIMARY application this year is 5:00 pm October 30, 2020.
Deadline for all supporting documents (MCAT scores, letters, supporting docs for TX resident determination)
is November 15, 2020.
I think most of you have submitted your primary long ago, but there are always a few who love the thrill of the deadline!
You could fill it out now so it’s ready, then log back on and send it to the schools you wish to attend. Schools don’t take the time to do a financial aid package for all applicants, just for likely matriculants.I don’t have any TMDSAS offers yet but have 4 DO acceptances. Should I be filling out FAFSA now, or waiting a couple months until I commit to a school?
This thread is a great startDoes anyone know of any good resources to familiarize myself with medical school student loan options/financial aid information? Filled out FAFSA but there's still so much to know personally. Thanks!
You can update your grades on TMDSAS if you took summer term classes.I haven't received any II's and I was complete early-late August for all schools. Should I start worrying? (506 MCAT, cGPA-3.77, sGPA-3.67 but strong extracurriculars)
And is it useless to reach out to schools to give an update (like my GPA increased over the summer or I presented at a conference)? Even if the conference was a future activity I had listed on the app?
I've been fortunate to have interviews at 3 schools however I'm wondering if me being complete mid August to end of August will effect when I get interviews? Also, do Texas schools send rejections?You can update your grades on TMDSAS if you took summer term classes.
At least 3 more months of interviews coming up, hang in there.
Your application was timely so the application itself will be what determines your interviews.I've been fortunate to have interviews at 3 schools however I'm wondering if me being complete mid August to end of August will effect when I get interviews? Also, do Texas schools send rejections?
Can I make updates to my application after it has closed (closed October 30)?
Are we able to add new activities?see pages xv and xvi of the TMDSAS application handbook.
At this point most applicants would add new grades if still in college courses. No changes to your activities or essays can be made.
Communication things like new mailing address, new email, or new phone number can be updated.
My secondaries were complete in early August, but I haven't received any interviews
My sGPA is 3.54 and my MCAT is 511. I'm I not considered a competitive applicant in Texas? Do schools here consider what undergrad you went to thus the difficulty level of the science classes?
Thank you for your help!
A publication would be worthy of an update email. I would send your news, including title, journal, and a one-sentence description to the schools where you haven't interviewed yet. Of the TMDSAS schools I think only UTSW is not interested in updates. "Dear school X, I'm proud to let you know that my research study on squirrel peanut butter preferences will be published in the journal Nature Snacks. I hope this will strengthen my candidacy for your school. Sincerely, erenyeager.Does anyone know if the TX schools accept pre-interview updates? I know Baylor does, but cannot see anything about TMDSAS schools. I got published, so was wondering if I could send them somethin
