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.
