    Attached is the latest PharmCAS volume update for the current 2020-2021 cycle. The total number of PharmCAS applicants with Submitted status has decreased by 7.7% as compared to this time last year. The number of applications (designations) has declined by 7.1% percent to date. The percent change in volume varies significantly across programs at this point. Some schools may show a substantial increase in volume because they are now directing their early assurance students to apply via PharmCAS before advancing to the professional phase of the Pharm.D. curriculum, as required by the full participation policy. Staff will contact selected programs to gain more insights into significant shifts in numbers.
