For anyone interested, PTCAS recently released their data report for the 2012-13 application cycle. Go to the this page, then click "PTCAS Applicant Data Report" for the pdf. Interesting stuff!

EDIT: For whatever reason, the link doesn't seem to be working, but it works if you go directly to the PTCAS website. :)

i find it interesting that the average for the number of applicants per school and number of qualified applicants were only 425 and 284, respectively...I expected the numbers would've been at least doubled lol

I'm attempting again to link directly to the PTCAS report (hopefully this works!):
http://www.ptcas.org/uploadedFiles/PTCASorg/About_PTCAS/PTCASApplicantDataRpt.pdf

Some interesting info from the report, about the 2012-13 application cycle (for PTCAS programs only):

45.9% of last year’s applicants who completed and submitted applications received an offer of admission (49% from the previous cycle received offers)

Someone applied to 61 PTCAS programs and received 1 offer. Someone else applied to 71 programs and received no offers.
