Hello,

I submitted my TMDSAS primary application in July (was transmitted to all the schools late July). But, I have not submitted any of the secondary applications yet.

I just received my MCAT score back from having taken it 8/8, and got a 495. Obviously, that is not a good score for any of the TMDSAS schools. So, I want to withdraw my application for all TMDSAS schools. I want to apply when I know my application is the best it could possibly be (right now, it's not). I will reapply when I retake my MCAT. Is this a good idea? To withdraw my applications from all the schools?
Or should I just not submit my secondary applications? I just think that would be inconsiderate?

Any kind advice would help. Thank you.

Sorry to hear, but unfortunately, since your primary application has already been transmitted you will be considered a reapplicant for these schools even if you do withdraw. You do need an MCAT retake, but don't rush it. Be comfortable and have good scores on AAMC materials before going into the test again.

I'm a little bit up the totem pole now I guess?

May as well go through with the schools that have free secondaries.

you’re already a reapplicant even if you pull them.

Thank you. Would you recommend me writing a short formal email to the ADCOMS of the schools I applied to and tell them I am withdrawing my app? I feel like it would be the most considerate thing to do instead of just doing nothing with my active application.

I don't think it would make a difference
