From CASPA's website:
"THE 2015-2016 APPLICATION CYCLE WILL OPEN ON APRIL 22ND, 2015. Applicants wishing to apply for the 2016 cycle may not create an account or send documents or tests scores to CASPA prior to this date. Documents received by CASPA prior to this date will not be accepted."
You heard it here first! What does this mean for you? It means that you need to have your personal statement and application ready to submit on April 22. As soon as you submit your entire application, CASPA will forward your documents to the PA schools you choose. As we have mentioned before, the sooner you apply, the better. Once the application cycle opens, physician assistant schools begin pulling applications and reviewing them to set up interviews. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!
Now is the time to begin working on your personal statement for physician assistant school. If you haven't started brainstorming yet, now would be a good time. After you complete a rough draft, submit your narrative to us to review. We'll have it back to you in a few days to submit to CASPA. The earlier you start putting together your application, the earlier schools will want to send you interview invitations. Start now.
