Medical Acceptances for Non-Texas Residents

When Can I Expect to Receive an Admission Decision? 

October 15 – April 30: Admissions decisions for non-Texas residents go out. The schools will communicate the decision to you directly, not TMDSAS.

As a non-Texas resident medical applicant, you will not participate in the Match. You do not need to worry about Pre-Match offers, school ranking, or the Match. However, you may receive multiple offers from more than one TMDSAS school during this time.


April 30: Medical applicants who are non-Texas residents with multiple offers must decide which school to attend and withdraw from all other schools. 


Non-Texas Resident Applicants  

As you saw from the timeline above, non-Texas residents may receive an offer at any point between Oct. 15th and April 30th. You can receive multiple offers during this time.

However, as soon as you get an idea of which school you wish to attend, go ahead and withdraw from the other offers. This is out of respect and courtesy to not only the schools, but also other applicants who are anxiously waiting to obtain an offer, just like you were at one point. The last day you are allowed to hold multiple offers is April 30th.


It is common for non-Texas resident applicants to also apply through AMCAS. Double-check that your TMDSAS or AMCAS school’s offer is non-binding to ensure you are following the national traffic rules. All applicants, including non-Texas residents, must follow the AAMC traffic rules. 



Medical acceptance offers are not complicated for non-Texas residents.
Watch the TMDSAS Office Hour: Medical Acceptances with TMDSAS Director, Enrique Jasso, to learn more about this process and to see the FAQs from other applicants who are also going through this process, just like you.

Good luck!
