Hey I just read on the TMDSAS (Texas medical and dental schools application site) web site that as of EY 2012

Medical Schools Requiring 3 Sem. hrs. Statistics:
The University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio
Texas A&M HSC College of Medicine
Texas Tech University HSC School of Medicine
UNT HSC – Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine

These schools will no longer accept calculus as a prereq and I guess only statistics taught by math/statistics dept. Well I'm posting this as a heads up to all who are applying in Texas. If you know anything else about it let me know.

The following schools will continue to require 3 semester hours of either Calculus OR Statistics:

Medical Schools Requiring 3 Sem. hrs. Calculus OR Statistics:
UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas
The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
Texas Tech University HSC Paul L. Foster School of Medicine at El Paso

Beginning with the EY 2012 application, The University of Texas Medical School at Houston will drop the math requirement all together.

Just remember, you have to take pre-reqs prior to matriculation, not prior to applying. So no one go crazy trying to fit statistics in this spring if you don't already have room for it in your schedule.
