  • Applicant Responsibilities During Admissions Process

    When should I expect to hear from the schools? 

    Each school has its own protocol with regards to interviews. Typically, interviews for medical and dental schools take place from August to January. Interviews for veterinary school typically take place in January. It is at the discretion of each school whether or not they notify you if you have not been selected for an interview. 

    Interview Protocol and Etiquette  

    Applicants must respond promptly to all invitations for interview. In those instances, when an applicant cannot appear for a previously scheduled interview, the applicant is responsible for promptly notifying the school. The cancellation should be undertaken by telephone with the school, followed by an email. If an applicant cancels an interview within 72 hours of scheduled day and time, and TMDSAS is notified by an institution, all schools to which the applicant applied will also be notified in writing.  

    Withdrawing an Application 

    Applicants who choose to withdraw from one or more schools must notify each school and TMDSAS in writing via internal message of their decision. Withdrawn applications can be reinstated by sending a message through the application internal messaging system until Oct 1, 2019. 

    Administrative Withdrawals: After October 1st, 2019, applicants who become unresponsive to attempts of contact by TMDSAS administrators for 90 days or more, will be administratively withdrawn.  

    Notifying Institutions of Intent to Enroll 

    Applicants who have made a final decision on the school they plan to attend have the obligation to promptly withdraw their applications from all other schools.
