  • After You Apply



    After you submit your application, TMDSAS will process and transmit your application to the medical schools.

    TMDSAS does not wait on transcripts, letters or test scores to process applications. It is your responsibility to ensure that TMDSAS has received all supplemental materials.

    Get the TMDSAS Mobile App!

    Stay on top of your application with the TMDSAS mobile app! It provides an easy way to check the status of your application, rank your school preferences, and update your contact information.

    • View the processing status of your application 
    • Check the status of your supporting documents including transcripts, test scores, and letters of evaluation
    • View your calculated GPAs
    • Update your contact information, including cell phone, mailing, and permanent addresses
    • Rank your medical school preferences and view your match
    • Contact TMDSAS support

    Please note:
    The TMDSAS mobile app is for applicants who have submitted their application for the current entry year’s cycle. If you have not yet submitted your application or are a reapplicant, you must submit for the current entry year to track your application status. 

    While You Wait

    While you wait to hear from the medical schools, here are some things you may want to do to prepare.

    Monitor the Status of Your Application

    You are responsible for checking the status of your application throughout the entirety of the application process. To check your status, sign in to your application, click on the [Status] status link from the menu on the right-hand side of the application.

    To see the status of your supporting documents, scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you reach the [Supporting Documents] heading. If a document has been received, the receive date will appear next to the document name.

    Complete Secondary Applications

    Secondary applications should be completed as soon as you submit your TMDSAS application.

    Any questions relating to a secondary application should be directed to the respective school. Any secondary application required documents and/or fees should be sent directly to the school and NOT to TMDSAS.

    View the medical schools that require a secondary.

    Update Your Application

    After submitting your application, you may make updates as needed to certain sections.

    You are able to make changes to the following sections yourself by logging back on to the application: Contact Info, Colleges Attended, College Coursework, Planned Enrollment, My Account and Test Scores.

    To update the information in your Letters of Evaluation section, you must send us an internal message via the application - include the exact change that needs to be made.

    Be sure to update this information whenever necessary. For instance, if you retake the MCAT, be sure to add the new test date to the application and send us the new score once it is released.

    Missing Item on Application Status Page?

    It can take 5-10 business days for items to appear on your Application Status page once they have been received by TMDSAS, especially near the deadline.

    If something you submitted doesn't show up within a reasonable amount of time, you may want to send another copy.

    Continue to check your status online.

    What is Processing?

    TMDSAS reviews your application for completeness and accuracy. If errors or inconsistencies are found, your application will be placed in the problem section - in which case we will immediately notify you of problems by email.

    TMDSAS will make every attempt to process your application in a timely manner. During our busy season, this process can take up to 6 weeks.

    For more information on processing refer to the Frequently Asked Questions - Application Processing at TMDSAS page.
