Hey everyone! I wanted to get a start on this thread. Has anyone taken the casper? I was hesitant to apply here because they require both that and the GRE. I'd love to hear how it went. Good luck to all who are applying this cycle! 😁

Hi! I took the CASPER exam last week. It was my second time taking it so I was used to the format and process already. If you have specific questions about it, I can answer them! 🙂

Okay. I was wondering if we had to retake the CASPer test if we took it last cycle. I emailed the program, and they have not gotten back to me yet. Do you know if we have to retake it?

How long on average did it take you guys to get a confirmation email? The only timeline I see in here is the 5/20 and 6/11 confirmation email. Did it take everyone this long? Just want to make sure before I panic! 

 

Thank you guys!
