PharmCAS Volume Update: Sep 2021

  • 1.  PharmCAS Volume Update: Sep 2021

    Posted 09-02-2021 05:19 PM
    2021-2022 (CURRENT) VOLUME TO DATE
    Attached is the latest PharmCAS applicant volume report as of September 2 versus the same time last year. The total number of applicants has declined by 10.7%, while applications have increased by 15.1%. The mean number of submitted applications per applicant to date has increased from 1.77 in 2020 to 2.42 in 2021. Applicant data by state and primary college attended are also included. It is too early to know how the absence of Early Decision and the addition of new priority deadline options will affect applicant behavior later in the cycle. Reports by geographic region and program type will resume in October.

    2020-2021 (PREVIOUS) CYCLE
    The 2020-2021 PharmCAS Applicant Data Report (PDF) will be released by November 2021, once all final admission decisions are received. Please submit all final decision codes for Verified applicants in the 2020-2021 cycle by September 30, if not already done. 

    Please contact Nicole Iarossi at with questions about specific applicants and AACP at with general PharmCAS questions or ideas. Thank you!
