It’s the Final Countdown

By Danielle Di SilvestroApril 26, 2017


And we’re off! The 16th CASPA application opens tomorrow, April 27, for the launch of the 2017-2018 application cycle. PAEA welcomes 219 participating programs, including five developing program members this year.

Every year, our partner, Liaison International, enhances the application so it’s in tip-top shape for applicants and programs alike come launch day. This year, while we’ve added some new options to the application, not a whole lot of changes have been made that will result in a major impact.

Over the past five years, we’ve seen a steady increase in applicant numbers at approximately a 6 percent increase year-over-year (or cycle-over-cycle), and we predict we’ll see the same this time. Brace yourselves for a busy cycle!

Applicants should contact CASPA’s customer service team at and programs can contact the WebAdMIT support team for assistance throughout this cycle. Best wishes for a great admissions cycle!
