Congrats! Looks like you'll get to check out Chico's Tacos yourself ;) I guess a benefit of interviewing in person is that you have earlier dates available. I have to wait until October 30th for my virtual interview.

So is it just me, or does Tech's interview process seem pretty intense? One hour and 45 minutes of multiple mini interviews, followed by 2.5 hours of traditional interviews... Yikes!
It's not like that at all. They split you into groups, and as one group does the MMI, the other goes on a school tour. For the traditional interviews, there are breaks / downtime in between your two interviews.

Whew, that's a relief. Thanks for the clarification! I was definitely confused by the itinerary on the application portal.

Hi, does anyone who has interviewed have any tips or advice to give? :) And how was the MMI portion? I’m not sure what to expect!
You have to be able to relax and have a conversation. You get two minutes to read/think about the MMI prompt, and 6 mins to answer. If you answer with some time left, you can ask for a follow up question. Just go over some different ethical scenarios so you can be prepared for the MMI. Contrary to the name "Multiple Mini Interviews," there's only one MMI question.

Later you'll interview with 2 volunteer dentists who practice in El Paso. Just know yourself and your application, and practice just holding a conversation with people. Don't get too bogged down in the hundreds of questions that you can memorize answers for. Just focus on "tell me about yourself," "why dentistry," and "why this school?" Other than that, do some reflection and try to understand exactly why you want to be a dentist and what makes you YOU and be prepared to speak about that.

For those who've already interviewed, how did it go? How was the MMI?
Like someone said above, 2 mins to read/prepare and 6 mins to respond. I took the whole 6 minutes so I was never asked a follow up question. It's just one MMI and is administered by a faculty member who times your answer. Honestly, the 8 minutes passed very quickly and it was very low stress, just know basic ethics and you should be fine.

Thanks for letting us know! If you don't mind, how did you prepare for the MMI?

Question- has anyone seen the addendum on TMDSAS that states that after May 2020, students who have been accepted to one school will not be allowed to be accepted by additional schools? AND you have two weeks (typically) to decide on a school. Anyone know anything more about this?

I don't think it's true for students to be only accepted to one texas school? Last year when I applied, I was told that texas schools don't share this kind of information with one or another.
