Applicants only applying to TCOM can take advantage of the Early Decision Program (EDP). If you are interested in the EDP, please submit your application to TMDSAS as soon as possible after May 1.
Typically applicants accepted through this program have exceptional academic and non-academic credentials. EDP applicants must complete the MCAT and all prerequisite courses by August 1. Decisions on EDP applicants will be made by September 15. If you are accepted under the EDP, you are obligated to accept the offer. Applicants who are not accepted under the Early Decision program are free to apply to other schools.
Why choose to apply through the Early Decision Program?
By applying for early decision you can avoid the high costs associated with applying to a number of different medical schools. Also, if osteopathic medicine is your first choice, this may be a viable option for you to consider since we send decisions out to Early Decision applicants before the regular match.
There is no limit on the number of applicants that can be admitted through the EDP. Applicants are reviewed by the Admissions Committee based on individual merit.
