How the process works…
To begin, applicants will apply using the Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS).
Applicants will receive an email confirmation once their application is under the initial review phase. During the initial review of an application a member of the Admissions Committee reviews the application to briefly assess the “fit” of the candidate’s experiences with the unique mission of McGovern Medical School in combination with the academic record. This review process will continue for the duration of the entire interview season.
Invitation to Interview
If selected, the invitation to interview will be sent to the e-mail address submitted in the TMDSAS application. It will include a link to the website where the applicant may schedule their preferred interview day (space availability is limited and filled on a first come first serve basis). Interviews are typically held between mid-late August and early-mid January.
Upon selecting their preferred interview date, students will receive detailed information about the interview day, which will include parking, the general schedule, overnight housing options offered and maps. Students should have a clear understanding of what will happen during the interview experience before they arrive and are expected to attend the entire interview day.
After the Interview
After the interview our Admissions Committee will complete a full review that involves a careful reading of the entire application by a member of the Admissions Committee. Each applicant will receive a ranking, relative to all other applicants based on their personal attributes, life experiences, academic preparation, contribution to the class, leadership, community service involvement, etc. The reviewer will then assign an overall ranking based on a summative impression of the application. The Admissions Selection Committee will utilize these rankings to determine which applicants will be offered an acceptance to our school.
