2019 - 2020 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

How long did it take from when your app got verified on CASPA until UF sent you an email saying they received your CASPA app? I have been waiting a few days for a confirmation email, and have gotten nothing so far, so I just wanted to double check!

I submitted my app on 5/24 and received the email from UF on 6/3.  Still waiting to see if I’ve made it to the second level review. I’m sure they have a lot of apps to process so it probably takes longer now than it did a month ago.

I didn't hear from them for 9 days and emailed them to ask about it to make sure. They told me there was a system error that caused my notification email to not go through to me. If it has been a while, I would email them. They were very quick to get back to me and very helpful!

I did as well...just remember it only takes one school! Good luck!

So sorry! Did you go through an interview? I’m worried I’ll get one as well since they won’t get my GRE scores until the 20th

I did not get an interview invite! I know they usually won’t review until everything is in, but don’t count yourself out!

What do you mean secondary review? I didn’t receive a rejection, but I never got the email saying anything about a secondary review..

No interviews have occurred as of yet.

Interviews begin around the first week of September and are held about every two weeks until the first week of December. Invites generally start going out in late July, early August and then continuously until late November. 

Im going to see what I can learn about the multi step review process, it appears there is possibly an additional step this year between the initial review and the AdCom. My thought and unofficial guess that it likely goes as follows, first review for completeness, second review for minimum requirements, third AdCom review of full application, essays, recommendations for invite.

The 20th of July is fine. That, in and of itself, won’t cause you to not get an interview.

As we get later in the cycle, the volume and competition goes up, it’s not impossible to get an interview, it just gets more competitive.

I just received confirmation from Ms. Kays that the AdCom level is the second level review if anyone was still wondering. From here it goes either interview invitation or denial of the application.

Thank you guys. First round of interviews is 8/26-28 this year. This is my second year applying and last year I was waitlisted after interviewing. As far as stats- 308 GRE, 3.5 GPA, 3.2 Science, around 1800 PCE (way more by their “by matriculation” calculations), 1000?+ hours volunteering, extensive research experience, GREAT new Letters of rec. I am very excited to be given the opportunity to interview again, I think they look very favorably on reapplicants, the school is magnificent from faculty to everything they have to offer. Good luck to all of you!!

They call for interviews! Everything else is emails (except acceptances)

I was Caspa verified 6/5 and received the “We received your application materials from CASPA and your information has been forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review” email on 6/10. I also did Casper 6/2 but I still haven’t heard anything about a second level review

How do we know if we are in secondary review? I received my email stating they received my application on 6-17-19 but I haven't heard anything since.

You’ll receive a second email stating that you have moved on to the second level evaluation.  I received the application accepted email on 6/3 and second level email yesterday.
