    I'm wondering if anybody can tell me anything about their program? I didn't apply at all to their program because they are on the atrocious texas application system. do you think it'd be worth it??

    My roommate just matriculated in their program. If you have any questions, I can pass any to him. He's doing C. elegans related research [real big there].

    I have had at least 3 individuals (all PIs) in the past month advise me to apply there. They have a very strong program. I know very little about the whole TMSDAS (?) application, if anyone has any insight that would be great. I know the Texas system works off a match for regular MD admissions, what about MSTP? I can't imagine it would be done as a match...

    I think it would be worth it to apply, although I second jots laziness standpoint! I do not want to fill out any more applications.

    I applied through the Texas match for regular MD but not for MD/PhD. I didnt apply there because they dont have biomedical engineering and didnt match my research interests. But they have 3 or 4 Nobel laureates I think, and the research they do have seems to be pretty strong.

    You have to fill out the TMDSAS common primary application, and then fill out MD/PhD applications along with medical school secondaries at each program.

    If you apply MD/PhD, you dont go thru the match process. I think all the Texas MD/PhD programs use rolling admissions. If you are not accepted into any MD/PhD programs, then you enter the regular Texas match as an MD-only applicant.

    Their financial package is pretty good, I think its even better than WashU stipend, but not sure what the cost of living adjustment would be between St Louis and Dallas.
