    Hints & Tips

    Start your Application and Submit Early!

    What’s the best way to make sure you get everything done on time? Start early.

    Check out the statistics of how likely you are to receive an interview by month of application submission.

    Quality Matters

    Although you may be tempted to rush through the process of applying for admission, remember that the quality of the items you submit will make a difference.

    During review, the dental schools consider every item submitted by an applicant and compare the complete application of each applicant to others in that same group. So the quality of your application may be the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd—and that results in your getting the decision you’re looking for.

    Release your DAT Scores

    Applicants are required to request their DAT scores be released to each of the dental schools they are applying with. All DAT scores released to the three Texas dental schools will automatically be sent to TMDSAS.
