Hello all,

This is a question for those who are familiar with Texas MD schools. Has anyone been rejected and found a successful alternate route to getting into a TX MD school, besides going the Osteopathic way?

For example, a friend of mine went and got a Master's degree and was accepted the year after he was rejected. I am only familiar with UT Public Health in Houston. What other graduate schools are out there? Does Texas have SMP's?

(sorry, my pre med adviser couldn't answer any of these questions for me)

Hello all,

Unfortunately I cannot provide information about being rejected and finding an alternate route into a Texas MD school due to the fact that I only applied once and luckily was accepted.

I am fairly certain Texas has only one SMP program and it is at The University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC). It is very well regarded and boasts an excellent acceptance rate for students who have completed their program. It can be a very wise and effective method of bouncing back from an unsuccessful cycle and making one's application more competitive. Almost every medical/health sciences/undergraduate institution has a graduate school, it is just up to you to research these programs, what they offer, and whether or not it would be worth it or beneficial to you.

Hope that helps! :thumbup:
