Submitting CASPA before GRE Score is Uploaded

Recommended Posts

I am applying to a school that has an August 1st deadline, so I want to submit my application by July 1st to make sure it has time to clear. I have yet to take the GRE. I called CASPA and they said I am able to submit my application to the school but just insert the date and number of the verification code of the GRE I am signed up for. Has anyone submitted an application and had their GRE score uploaded during the clearing process?

Yes. Just be aware that the school you plan on applying to might not consider your application complete until receiving your official GRE score. Ultimately meaning they won’t view your application until they have everything. I would call and confirm with the school to  make sure. I was in the same boat as you. I still submitted my applications before having my GRE done, which definitely helped, but a lot of schools wouldn’t look at my apps without my official test scores posted. REGARDLESS, if you can, send in your apps!!!!!!! CASPA gets busy, and it can take awhile for them to verify you. Get in line now if you can! Once you take your GRE, it takes a good two weeks for you to receive your scores, and an additional 3-5 days for the scores to send to your selected schools. I’d allow about 3-4 weeks for the entire process. Good luck!

      Hi All!
      I am a graduate student in public health and have worked with providers to inform patient care plans as well as screen patients for adverse childhood experiences, resiliency, quality of life, etc... I have not been an EMT, CNA, Aid, or other roles that are usually seen with direct patient care experience for PA schools. I have already submitted my application, but after attending an information session I am nervous that schools will not count my public health hours as patient care (I made the mistake of listing them as health care experience and not patient care experience). Does anyone have any thoughts on this process? I have already reached out to one school directly and added the experiences as patient care experience in CASPA (it lets you do this even after submission, but I do not know what happens next). I do have a lot of healthcare experience and research experience. Have anyone else added experiences after they submitted? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to private message if that is better for you. Thanks so much! I really appreciate any support with this!

      Hi guys!
      I recently graduated and I am working on my CASPA application. I am super nervous about my personal statement.
      I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some tips/ pointers on how to format it, what to include, and what to omit.
      I frequently second guess myself, so any opinions would be helpful.
      I really appreciate any help.
      Send me a pm if possible! 
      Thank you,
      Ahuva

      Hello there, 
      I am looking for advice after accidentally self-reporting an incorrect GRE test date – and now my application is locked.
      I already submitted to my schools that do not require the GRE. I then went back to send the rest of my apps to programs that do require GRE. Originally, I was not going to self-report any GRE scores, and planned to just sent them through ETS. At the last minute, I thought it may be a good idea to enter that I did in fact take the test... but I accidentally reported the incorrect date. The error is only a date, with no ID or self-reported scores included. I have already sent the official scores from ETS to my individual programs from the actual date I took the test. I have not yet submitted the application with this error to any schools.
      I understand that we cannot edit old information after it has been submitted, but we can add new entries as we go. I misunderstood that we also cannot edit those new entries added, even though the new info has not been submitted yet.
      I have already contacted CASPA, and they confirmed what I already guessed – that it cannot be changed. I'm kicking myself, as I have worked very hard to craft an application I am so so proud of. I was meticulous and diligent in ensuring there were no typos or mistakes in my experiences and personal statement... and then BOOM, it happened in a split second and cannot be corrected. 
      I can see that my official GRE test date and scores will be included on the application, just underneath the self-reported date. I know that it is a minor error, as it is a self-reported date with no included scores… but an error nonetheless. None of my programs required or requested self-report GRE information, only the official report. 
      It is the difference of about one week, 7/22/19 (official) vs 7/31/19 (error). ETS does not even allow you to take the test this close back to back (21 day minimum).
      Would you recommend contacting the programs to let them know? 
      If you made it through my novel, you are a trooper, and I would appreciate any advice 🙂
      Thank you!

      Hello all! I took the GRE in May and received a 153 on quant (49%tile), 152 verbal (54%tile), and I did pretty bad on the writing- 3.0 (15%tile). I was wondering how bad it would hurt my application to have a 3.0 on writing.
       
      I have ~2700 relevant PCE hours, over 1,000 HCE hours, 3.68 cGPA, 3.53 sGPA both GPAs are an upward trend. Should I be too worried? I definitely plan on taking the GRE again if I don’t get accepted this year.
      Anyone have experience applying with low GRE and still getting accepted? 
      thanks!!
