Does anyone have the prompt from last year for the supplemental. I was thinking of trying to brainstorm before the application opens on CASPA. From what I've heard it opens August 1st.

Oh wow, I'm really glad I decided to randomly take a look at this thread as I didn't realize they had switched to a master's program. I will definitely be applying now but it looks like they favor students with research experience. Can anyone confirm that? I wonder if they've said anything about that at the info sessions. I'm also surprised that they dropped the PCH number significantly. I believe it was a minimum of 3,000 last year and now it's only 500.

 

Have you all seen that tuition rate? $16,329 x 9 quarters = $146,961. YIKES!

 

I wonder why their PANCE pass rate is low - only 89% (national average is 94%).

I guess it's the same price as USC now and has even surpassed Touro, which includes an MPH with that price! Now I'm hesitant to apply, too.

Yeah their tuition increase is a bit alarming, I'm hesitant to apply.

yea...you are definitely paying for the degree and the prestige of graduating from stanford.

As a 1980 graduate of Stanford who went for free, this is disappointing. But I am not surprised at all. The slightly lower PANCE rate before was due to the program really reaching out to underrepresented students who had the experience but may have been at a slight disadvantage academically. Statistically there is a real difference between students who have leafy gotten a BS and those who have not on standardized tests.

 

But even with the increased cost, this likely represents a better deal than the current price plus the tuition for a st. Francis masters. I am mostly disappointed that they dropped the HCE and now want research experience instead. It will be very interesting to see the demographics of their first class, and they had better put the full advantage of the Stanford clinics and hospital into the rotations. And then it will be interesting to see how many grads go into primary care versus specialties. Will they fill with Stanford and UC undergrads who did not want to go to medical school? Or will they stick with the mission?

I applied on 08/05 and was CASPA verified on 06/26 and haven't received any communication from the admissions dept either!

Give them time. They are going through a transition and are probably receiving a lot of applications. I applied last year and it took almost a month before I heard anything.

Has anyone noticed that (after submitting the app), the downloadable CASPA PDF removes all the paragraphs breaks for the supplemental questions on Stanford's app? My 2-3 paragraph responses are now clumped into one long run-on paragraph. Has this been an issue for anyone else?

Has anyone's GRE been officialized on their PDF download of the CASPA? I've sent mine a few weeks ago and the only thing showing is an unofficial input of them. I made sure I sent it to the appropriate place.

Mine is still only showing up as unofficial as well and I submitted the scores over a month ago. What code did you submit to?

I don't think we will ever see the official GRE score on CASPA application. When I sent my score to Stanford, it's only the school itself. For other schools, they will have an option of the school name with CASPA word after it, which means it will be sent to CASPA instead and will only show on the application for the chosen school. I don't know if we should call the school to make sure they have received either. Still finishing up my supplemental questions. Good luck everyone!

I remember in their info session they said they start the interviews by the end of Aug and they have a rolling admission. Has anyone heard back from them?
