Hi everyone! I noticed there wasn’t a forum for this cycle. Let’s use this to discuss any questions or comments we might have.  Best of luck everyone!

Hi! Glad you created this, I will be applying here! Love Rosalind Franklin and a bit nervous to apply, currently struggling to study for the GRE. Does anyone know how much Rosalind Franklin takes the GRE into account? I know schools usually go for the baseline of a score of 300. I'd appreciate the advice!!

 

Best of luck to everyone!

Submitted CASPA application 05/10

CASPA verified date 05/10

Application verification from Rosalind Franklin 05/11

Application complete from Rosalind Franklin (additional application fee and GRE scores received) 05/16

 

As for the diversity topic I think it is a good opportunity to discuss something about yourself that may not be expressed elsewhere in your application. For instance, something about you personally that reflects well on your character and how you embrace diversity. They want to know what you have to offer and how you will add to their program. At leasts that is what I stuck to!

Has anyone done or started the diversity topic in the questions section for Rosalind Franklin on CASPA?

Is anyone else having issues with the application checklist portal? I logged in with the temporary pin, changed the password, and successfully submitted the payment (received email receipt of this). However, when I tried to log-in today it said there was no account associated with my email (even though it's the email they sent the directions to)? Very weird and wanted to see if others had the same problem

Hi, 

I don't have any problem logging in. Try using the link they provided in the email. If you still have issues, email them and hopefully they can fix it for you.

Kinda dumb q but to those who wrote a diversity statement and have already submitted: did you figure out a way to separate paragraphs? Even though I save my essay with spaces between the three paragraphs and they show up in the dialog box, CASPA makes the spaces disappear when I download the PDF to look at (assuming this is how it will look to them). Do we have no choice but to submit an essay without any differentiation between paragraphs like we can for the CASPA personal statement?

Don't worry about the spacing. It is a CASPA thing, and I am sure the programs are aware of that. Everyones will show up like that to them. It does that for all supplemental questions for all programs.

Okay cool thanks! For their own sake, I do hope it saves the spacing when they download it - I would completely hate being on an adcom if I had to read a bunch of essays that look like monsters sans spacing haha

Do most applicants complete the diversity statement? I submitted mine without one and am wondering if I should ask if I am able to submit one through email etc. Mainly just wondering whether it seems to be make or break on the app. Thanks for any help guys!

Hey guys! Just wondering if anyone who has submitted has heard anything back yet?

I received "Your application file is complete" email 05/30. It says to allow 2-8 weeks for the admission committee to review my app.

I also got the email stating my app file is complete. That was on 05/16. Someone on reddit posted yesterday that they just got an interview invite! No other info though.
