So I’m not sure if there’s a better place for this question, but has anyone who’s already submitted gotten a confirmation from San Antonio that they received your app? Houston and Dallas have emailed but nothing from SA yet. Thanks!

I got something from Houston, but nothing from Dallas or San Antonio. Have you heard when they start offering interviews?

Based on last year’s forum, SA and Houston started sending invites around the 3rd week of July I believe but last year Dallas was pretty behind the other 2 schools!

Also if you have a gmail account, my email from Dallas said they’ve had issues in the past with their emails being put in junk/ spam folders so I’d check those folders as well!

I received a confirmation from San Antonio a week after submitting my app. Didn't hear from UH or A&M yet. How long did it take you to hear back?
I heard from A&M 4 days later and from Houston a week later. Still nothing from SA and it’s been almost 2 weeks

I just submitted A&M's secondary (that list of checkboxes). Do i need to pay any additional fee/ anything else for the secondary?

Nope nothing from SA still and I submitted on 5/24. Is your file complete? My committee packet should be submitted early this week but that’s the only thing I’m still waiting on.

Yea it took awhile for my packet to get in... but everything is complete for me as of yesterday (Been waiting for TMDSAS to tell me my dentist's letter was in).

Is not receiving a notification a reason for concern? Not sure if I should just wait it out or call and see if they did get it...

I don’t think so, if you look at last year’s thread page 3 apparently it’s pretty common to take a long time especially for SA.

*~*~*TMDSAS 2018*~*~*

I would check you spam/ junk occasionally though because my email from Dallas stated they’ve had issues with their emails being identified as spam.

For anyone who submitted a committee packet that included dentist letter: did it take longer for that letter status to change to received than it took for the status of the packet to change?

Yup. Took me like an extra week for my dentist letter to be verified even though it was part of my committee letter. IDK why it's like that tbh.

I think you’re okay, but they did take a week to upload my dentist letter from my committee packet, just a heads up!

I am still waiting for my committee letter to be uploaded. It is taking longer than I expected and I am becoming more nervous. I have not submitted my application yet. Does TMDSAS also take couple weeks to verify the GPA and transcript?

You can submit your application without your committee packet! The processing time for applications is getting longer, so I would submit like now and get a head start - TMDSAS schools wait for everything to be in (transcripts, DAT scores, letters) before they begin reviewing your app.

Off topic slightly, does anyone have admissions stats from last year's acceptance pool (Class of 2022). I was wondering what the most up to date GPA/DAT scores were for last year's entering class. Thank you in advance!

Hello,

I am reading the TMDSAS website and it shows that majority of interviewed students submitted application in May/June. If I have everything ready to submit now, will I be at a disadvantage?

Hello,

It takes a couple of weeks for everything to be verified and transmitted to schools. I applied on August 20th and my stuff wasn't transmitted to the Texas schools until October. It was tough waiting for interview invites in December and January when others we were waiting on acceptances.

Just because you apply early and interview in the first or second round doesn't guarantee an acceptance. How you interview is more important than when you interview. Pre-December interviews are obviously preferred but performing poorly at an early interview can get you forgotten by ADCOMs.
Strong late interview > weak/forgettable early interview.

If you feel you app is strong (DAT, GPA, LORs, ECs, etc) then you gotta take your shot. Best of Luck!

Demarcus Cousins is a weenie for going to Warriors btw ;)

I haven’t seen anything so far but if they’re sticking to the same schedule as last year, SA and Houston should be sending out some next week!

This might be a silly question, but they don't send out emails until after TMDSAS transmits the application to the schools?

If I took the DAT last year but did not apply that cycle, do I need to resubmit my DAT scores or how does this work? I believe I entered my Dentpin, date, and individual scores on the TMDSAS application but I was not sure if I need to do anything else. Thank you!
