Did you get an email from them saying they received your application? I submitted by CASPA a few days ago but was my official GRE scores said they were not sent out to the schools I designated until today since I took it very recently.

Submitted & verified as of 6/20. Received email from Stanford on 6/21. Fingers crossed I get an interview. GPA could be a lot better, hoping my direct patient experience makes up for it. Good luck guys!

I just submitted my app! Hopefully it's not too late! I looked through last year's forum but couldn't find out whether people who submitted in late July still got interview invites. Does anyone know? 

I figured I'd apply since Stanford says they utilize rolling admissions, but invites don't usually come out until ~October anyway. ? Good luck everyone!

Has anyone heard anything back yet besides confirmation emails?

Nope. My confirm email was sent on June 12th and it said "we will reach out again within approximately the next two months" so I guess around August 12th.

Just received an email saying I didn't make the cut. Good luck to the rest of you.

Dear Porsche' Taylor,

Thank you for your interest in the Stanford School of Medicine's Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program.  The application process for our program is intensely competitive, and we received many outstanding applications during this admissions cycle.  We are only able to invite a small number of applicants to proceed to the next stage of the admissions process, and we regret that we are unable to offer that to you this year. 

Please know that we review each application carefully and holistically, and that no one deficiency results in a denial.  If you would like guidance in assessing the strength of your application, you may find our Self-Assessment tool helpful: http://med.stanford.edu/pa/admissions/self_assessment.html.

We encourage you to apply to other PA programs, and we wish you every success in the pursuit of your PA studies.

Sincerely,

MSPA Admissions Team
Stanford School of Medicine

So sorry to hear that I wish you luck for the rest of your schools! Do you mind if I ask when you submitted? I submitted almost 8 weeks ago and I believe they said around then they would send information

Hi all, 

On CASPA were your GRE scores marked as accepted under the standardized test section? All of my other schools accepted on 7/4 or 7/6 but nothing from Stanford. Haven't received the confirmation email either...

Hey! To my understanding Stanford doesnt have a CASPA GRE code, meaning ETS sends the scores directly to Stanford and not CASPA. So you should be fine!

I was also rejected from Stanford on 7/31/18.  I am learning to accept this.

I used classes from a "community college" to fill all but 1 of my upper division science prereqs.  It was a branch campus of the University of Cincinnati.  Both Marietta and Kettering considered that acceptable.  It was way cheaper and frankly better instruction: PhD faculty - including in lab, and small class sizes.

Cool, glad to know I'm not the only one. I'm unsure how important the "upper division" aspect is to them. Hopefully not very.

      Can someone explain why Stanfords tuition is 160k for the program? Am I reading this wrong? What makes this program so much better?
    • By kcb01
      Hi there,
      I was hoping that someone could help answer this one on Stanford and retaking GRE exam.
      I know that you are required to submit your Stanford application through CASPA by September 1st, but does that mean you have to submit your GRE scores by that date?  Intuitively the answer seems obvious but I have read that you can take/retake the GRE after that September 1st deadline and update your scores on CASPA. The updated scores will then be sent to the programs you've applied to. While I've already sent preliminary scores to Stanford, I'm planning on re-taking the GRE and am wondering what the latest date I can take it is.
      I apologize if this discussion has already occurred but I could not track it down.  Any links officially describing this timeline would be great.
      Thanks in advance for your time,

      what pa program are you in and what's your profile like? I am still an undergrad student and I would want to be (extra) well-prepared for PA school. I have looked at multiple uni's programs, but since I'm in california, I'd like to stay local. I was looking at usc's. anybody in usc's program? gpa? GRE score? HRE? curious. thank you.

      Hello all,
      I noticed a discussion thread has not yet been started for this year's application cycle. I recently received an email from admissions letting me know that my application has been received and is under review. Where is everyone else in the application process? Any little drops of wisdom on how the Stanford admissions process typically goes, or the merits/drawbacks of their curriculum and program?
      Thanks, and good luck

      Hi--
       
      I am applying for this coming application round. I recently took the GRE:
      162 verbal
      5.5 analytical
      153 quantitative
       
      If it wasn't for the quantitative score, I wouldn't be inclined to retake the test. However, I am wondering if I could still get in to my schools of choice. My overall GPA and science GPA are 3.93, I graduated valedictorian of my department, and I have several years of experience working as a clinical dietitian, as well as public health and policy work. I also have good letters of rec and tend to interview well. I don't want the GRE score to be the one thing that gets in my way, but I don't have a lot of time to practice and re-take it. If everything else in my application is good, can I still get in to Stanford or Yale with a quant. score in the 51st percentile?
