    • Offers of Admission can only be extended to applicants who are not holding a seat at another institution.

For EY2021, the TMDSAS dental schools have delayed the beginning of the interview season to accommodate for any delays applicants could face such as delays in DAT testing or obtaining letters of evaluation. 

When the dental schools begin extending offers of acceptance in mid-December, this will kick-off the rolling admissions period during which applicants may continue to receive offers of acceptance.

The application deadline delay means that the medical schools can begin interviewing later in the cycle.
