    All PharmCAS institutions were expected to report at least one admission decision to PharmCAS by June 15 for every verified PharmCAS application received via WebAdMIT. Participating institutions are encouraged to continue to update their admission decisions on a dynamic basis and not wait to set them all on the deadline date, so that the "Competing Offers Made" and "Competing Offers Accepted" reports in WebAdMIT reflect current and accurate data. WebAdMIT Support can assist with bulk code changes, as needed.

    See the PharmCAS School Manual (starting on page 78) to learn more.

    Note: The Matriculated decision code should only be used once the accepted applicant has started classes. Do not use the code if an applicant has only accepted an offer of admission, participated in a new student orientation, or registered for classes.

    While strongly encouraged, not all colleges and schools may have entered decision codes in WebAdMIT by June 15 or on a frequent and consistent basis for a variety of reasons. Therefore, the "Competing Offers Made" and "Competing Offers Accepted" reports may not always reflect up-to-date information for reasons beyond an applicant's control. Final decision codes are due by September 30.

    Thank you for your help and cooperation! Please let me know if you have any questions.
