I have to agree with the comment on diversity. If that is your mission, you shouldn't make accessibility difficult for these groups of people and also show diversity in your cohorts. Many programs cla

Has anyone applied that has not heard anything yet? 

I believe they are inviting for second interviews on a rolling basis. For instance, I interviewed last Wednesday (1/20) and received my invitation for a second interview two days later on Friday (1/22

For those accepted, congratulations!! That is such an amazing accomplishment and you should be so proud of yourselves! If you don't mind me asking, how long were you given to accept/decline the admission offer? Just curious as to how long individuals who were waitlisted should expect the earliest to hear back would be regarding spot availability. Thank you in advance and congratulations again!

Thank you!! And we’re given 14 days to respond to the initial offer.

Hey folks! Sorry to interrupt the discussion, but I have a question for those that have been admitted thus far. Were any of you lacking in the 'upper division bioscience courses" suggestion/requirement?

I'm planning to apply to Stanford for the coming 2021-2022 cycle (I applied in 2019-2020 but was rejected and didn't reapply again this past year), and some of their admissions details have changed since then. I've taken 2 upper (Histology and Biochemistry), along with several other lower (Microbiology, intro Genetics, Human Bio, General Bio, etc). I know that they state that all these courses are suggested rather than required, but I wanted to consult this forum to see if anyone has actually been admitted that didn't have 3 or more upper division bioscience. Thank you ❤️

Hi!! 
I was admitted for this upcoming cohort. I am a Biology major, so I had a lot of Sciences. 
I took embryology, cell biology, endocrinology,genetics, histology, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, and organic chemistry. 

I hope this helps. 
Good luck!! 💕

Sounds like you had well over the 3 suggested. Mostly looking to hear if anyone who’s been admitted did so with less than 3 upper division bioscience.

Hi! I was admitted this cycle and don't know if this will help you, but I only took Neurophysiology, Genetics and Microbiology. The other classes I took in addition to my Bachelor's were medical terminology, Stats and the second part of Gen Chem. My Bachelors is in Kinesiology, so I definitely don't have an abundance of upper division science courses.

I had a ton of upper div science, only one that I think would qualify as bioscience (biochem).  Most of it was chemistry.

Thanks so much to both you & @PIIFree! Definitely helps. I was just apprehensive about applying if that element was a dealbreaker. I know programs typically just list their bare minimums, but those actually admitted often exceed that. 

In addition to A&P the sciences I’ve taken are Microbiology, Inorganic Chem, Organic/Biochem combo, straight Biochem, Histology, Genetics (intro), Current Issues in Biology, Nutrition, Medical Terminology, Human Bio, & General Bio. (Plus Statistics & College Algebra for math.) Only Histology & Biochem were technically upper division, though I think Micro counts too. Many of these were introductory level coursework so I know that doesn’t put me at an advantage against Bio majors, but, I think I’ll at least take the shot and apply. 🙏🏼
