Make the Most out of Applying Through TMDSAS

The EY 2022 TMDSAS application is right around the corner, and surely, you’ve been preparing for this moment for quite some time. One of the things you’re likely to have in mind is the cost of the application process: the primary application, secondaries, documents, and exams. While this can seem overwhelming, we hope that you see the value of working with TMDSAS as your application service. 

So, first things first: what is the cost?  The TMDSAS application has a flat fee of $200. This means that regardless of the program type, your residency classification, or the number of schools you choose to apply to, the rate stays at $200. But there’s more! 

TMDSAS is involved in whole host of educational opportunities aimed at helping applicants to become more familiar and more confident with the process, even before diving into the application. These opportunities come in the form of applicant workshops, webinars, and the development of our resources. If you haven’t yet checked these out, we recommend you do so immediately! 

Furthermore, TMDSAS is committed to providing personalized support throughout the application process. As you work through the application, you can count on TMDSAS to provide support and guidance wherever we canHave a question? Give us a call or send us a message. Better yet, join us during one of our Facebook Live Q&A “Office Hours” to get answers in real time. And it doesn’t end once you submit, because you will be assigned to your very own Applicant Liaison – your personal guide to navigating the rest of the process post-submission.  

The long and short of it is that we know you have quite the journey ahead of you, and TMDSAS is here each step of the way to help you become more prepared, confident, and successful on the road to professional school.
