ADEA CAAPID Application Instructions

Personal Statement

Applicants are asked to explain their desire to pursue an advanced placement program in the U.S. While this section is required for ADEA CAAPID, not all programs will use the personal statement in their decision-making process. Applicants should not make the essay program-specific as it will be provided to all programs through ADEA CAAPID. Personal statements may be a maximum of 5200 characters in length, including spaces, and cannot be edited after initial submission of the ADEA CAAPID application.
