    Attached is the latest PharmCAS volume update for the current 2020-2021 cycle. The number of PharmCAS applicants with Submitted status is down by -4.9% and applications are down by -5.8% as compared to January 2020. The total number of applicant accounts in the PharmCAS system is currently up by +1.5% and the number of applicants with in-progress status is currently up by +7.0% as compared to this time last year.

    As previously reported, some schools 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.
