PharmCAS Volume Update: September 2023

  • 1.  PharmCAS Volume Update: September 2023

    Posted 09-06-2023 10:44 AM
    2023-2024 (CURRENT) VOLUME TO DATE
    Attached is the latest PharmCAS applicant volume report as of September 6 versus the same date last year. The total number of applicant accounts in the system increased by +3%, and the number of applicants with Submitted status increased by +11%. The total number of applications in the system increased by +2%, and submitted applications increased by +10%. The mean number of submitted applications per applicant changed from 2.51 in 2022 to 2.48 in 2023. Applicant data by state and primary college attended are also included. Eighty-seven percent (87%) of programs in the current cycle selected a deadline between March 2024 and June 2024, versus 85% of programs in the last cycle (as of September 2022). It is too early to know whether current trends will persist later in the cycle. 

    2022-2023 (PREVIOUS) CYCLE
    The 2022-2023 PharmCAS Applicant Data Report (PDF) will be released by November 2023, once all final admission decisions are received. Please submit all final decision codes for all Verified applicants in the 2022-2023 cycle by September 30, if not already done.
