Are you confused on how to re-apply ADEA CAAPID?
The CAAPID application process can be difficult and complicated, especially when one is reapplying and has a number of doubts about documentation and how to apply, what documents to change, and which schools to apply to get accepted!
HOW YOU SHOULD APPLY?
Before reapplying, make sure to check what went wrong with your last application!
Was it a letter of recommendation that did not emphasize your skills and experiences?
Was your curriculum vitae a crisp and clear description of your awards and achievements? Was the statement of purpose or supplemental essays not written well enough to give a precise overview of your journey, or was it that your application reached us very late?
Make sure to shortlist the dental schools you want to apply to in this cycle, and do make sure you recheck the eligibility of admissions.
After you have found the answers through introspection, do ask the admissions committee for feedback, as a few schools do offer it to improve it for future admissions cycles.
CAN YOU USE YOUR EXISTING ACCOUNT TO RE-APPLY?
Yes, one can use an existing account to re-apply for the new CAAPID cycle. The only thing that needs to be kept in mind is that there are some documents that can be transferred to the new application, but there are a few that cannot be transferred.
WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE TRANSFERABLE TO THE RE-APPLICATION?
The transferable application items are as follows:
- Personal information and academic history, including experiences, achievements, and dental degrees
If you don’t have any new experiences or new academic achievements, you need not change the information, but it is always better to update with new achievements.
- Evaluations from ECE or WES
It has to be noted that these are transferable for the first three cycles unless they expire. If the candidate reapplies for the fourth cycle, a new evaluation has to be submitted.
- Curriculum Vitae and resumes can be transferred
- Standardized tests of TOEFL and NBDE Scorecards
- Official U.S. transcripts and other relevant information
Most of the documents are transferable, but there are a few that cannot be transferred and need to be recent.
- Personal statement, which is also known as a statement of purpose, and essays.
Though the same statement of purpose can be submitted, it is always better to update the personal statement with new achievements and make it strong enough to stand out among the number of applications and make your selection definite.
- Letters of Evaluation, also known as letters of recommendation
- Program-specific material
- Payments are to be made again and are not transferable
