I received my rejection yesterday and was asked to take the CASPer. Good luck to everyone else! 

So sorry to hear 😔 Thank you for sharing this with the thread.

So if we haven't received a Casper invite, but we also haven't received a rejection letter... we still have a chance right?

I wonder if everyone who got an interview in previous years was sent a casper invite?

This is the first year they’ve implemented CASPer! However based on the email I received inviting me to take CASPer, they said I moved on to Phase Two of the application process and “All applicants in Phase Two of the 2019-2020 MSPA application cycle are required to take the CASPer online assessment to assist with our selection process.”

It says on their page that we hear within two weeks of the deadline about interview or rejections. Tomorrow should hit the two week mark and I haven’t heard anything after my Casper invite July

Do they send rejections to everyone that doesn’t get an interview or ones that don’t meet requirements?
Will we be waiting forever

FYI
Reached out to the schools I hadn’t heard from and said they had contacted me and one school sent this. 898d94e39dd28c17def57490cedc8d57.jpg

I think it's all just taking longer than they anticipated--they introduced CASPer for the first time this year and the deadline was, I believe, a month earlier than last year. I hope we'll hear something soon, but I'm also trying to not read into it too much either!

WHAT! I have a Live account. So this means if they had tried to contact me, I am just SOL?

I just received this email regarding the CASPA email issues, so they are aware and are working to fix the issue. I would keep checking back and change the prefered email in CASPA as advised above. No news is still good news!

(this was sent to my gmail account, btw, and I had received their invitation prior, but sounds like they're being thorough.)

I would change your email on CASPA and reach out to the schools. That’s what I did because I had only heard from a few.

Have you taken CASPer yet? I didn't get this email, but I also had completed CASPer so maybe they were able to deduce that I did indeed get the message...

I took the CASPer back in May and sent them my scores as soon as I received their invitation back in mid June. It says "results delivered" to Stanford on the CASPer site so I'm assuming they have them and that this was just part of the beginning of a mass email. They only sent it an hour ago so they may still be reaching out to students?

I realized I forgot to tell you my application timeline!

Here it is- Submitted CASPA 5/21 and was received by Stanford on 5/31. Received CASPer invitation on 6/7 (I had already taken CASPer in May for other programs so I immediately sent my scores). Heard back yesterday (8/16) for an October interview.

Hope this helps 🙂
