So I noticed on their website that all their prerequisites are recommended. Has anyone got an actual confirmation that they would disqualify you if you did not meet any of these requirements? Or are there any past applicants that got in without having completed one prereq? I've tried contacting them several times to no avail. Thanks!

When you mean "supplemental application" do you mean the additional questions on CASPA specifically for Stanford? I was under the impression that there was no separate supplemental application...?

Emailed Stanford the other day because I had not heard from them at all, they replied today that they have all my application materials and I am under review.

Does anyone know what is expected when it comes to uploading additional documents other than the ones it says are strongly recommended? Should I re-upload a copy of my personal statement? And what kind of writing sample are they looking for?

Afternoon everyone! Has anyone heard anything from Stanford? Even just a "receipt of application" email? Applied in late May and at this point have at least been contacted by my other programs. Please let me know! Good luck to everyone!

Cheers, 

Dan

Nope. I'm in the same boat. CASPA verified mid May, no word yet.

What was this in response to, i.e., had you sent them an email asking about your status?

Hi all,

When sending your GRE scores to Stanford, did your score post to your CASPA?

I contacted ETS and they told me "Please be advised, STANFORD UNIVERSITY (4704) is not affiliated with CASPA. Therefore, your scores were sent directly to the institution, not to CASPA."

Is there a way for us to confirm Stanford received the scores?

Thanks:)

Yes, some schools don't have GRE scores sent through CASPA and I believe Stanford is one of these schools.  You can always email the admissions office to confirm that they received them.  I'm sure they would be happy to do so!

I contacted Stanford about it and Fred informed me that if it was sent to the school then they most likely have received it. If something is missing from our file, they will contact us!

Has anyone else noticed the massive tuition hike from the PCAP program to the MS program? Initially tuition was $7500/quarter for 7 quarters, total with fees around 60-70k. Now it's 16.5k/quarter for 9 quarters, total with fees around 160k! That's more than double. Am I misunderstanding this, or have they just increased the price as they feel the program is significantly more worthy now?

You are correct! This is terrible. :(
