Application Process

The application process will start at the end of spring for some, for most Texas programs the central application, PTCAS, opens in July.  This is the spring/summer prior to your senior year of college.  During the application process you will garner your letters of reference, take the GRE (any time prior to application is fine too), and write your personal statement.  Your applications should be submitted as close to the opening date as possible, early applications garner more attention and some programs have priority deadlines or early decision (PTCAS) deadlines.  The OPSA will conduct Application Sessions to help you submit the best application you can.
