CASPA Reapplication

Recommended Posts

If you bring forward your application from last year, are you allowed to edit your experiences? I didn't see that mentioned on the CASPA FAQ. Also, CASPA mentions that if you reapply and choose to start a fresh application, then everything from last year is wiped. Does that work the other way around too? If I choose to use my old application but midway I want to start fresh can I do that too?

 

Thanks!

wxwin93, when first logging into your CASPA profile as a re-application, the first screen will ask you to reconfirm your email address. The next screen is where it will ask you about Copying Application Material or Starting a Fresh Application.

 

(PAGE 2)   Decide if You Want To Copy Application Data

 

Step 2 in the re-applicant process is to decide if you want to copy data from a previous application. Whether you previously submitted an application or started an application but did not complete the application process, you can copy data to save time with this application. Select Copy Application Data to move to the next step. On the next screen, you will be able to review all of the application sections and decide what you want to copy and where you would prefer to start fresh.

 

Copying previous data is a great way to get a head start on your application. The copy process may take some time - you will receive an email when your new application is ready for you to work on.

If your previous application was a test application or you would prefer to start with a blank application, select Start a Fresh Application to clear out all application information. You cannot undo the Start a Fresh Application decision, so please be sure you want to wipe out all previous application entries before selecting this option.

Once you select Copy application, you will be taken to a new screen that looks like this:

 

(PAGE 3)     Select all of the application sections for which you wish to copy application data. Any data you entered previously will be carried forward.

 

Colleges Attended and Transcript Entry will not be editable for applicants who were Verified in a previous application. You will be able to edit in progress degrees and coursework, and add new degrees and coursework. If you did not progress far enough in your previous application to be Verified, all information in Colleges Attended and Transcript Entry will be editable. All other sections of the application will be editable.

Does anyone have experience Copying Application material? Is there any reason not to do so if you are a re-applicant? Are there any potential inconveniences/downfalls?

Thanks for the detailed answer, KBAB! I called CASPA and they said the benefits of reapplying is to save time and cut down on processing time. The representative did not mention if there were any downfalls, so I think it just comes down to personal preferences.
