I think that a low GPA shows that you lack the discipline to make the grade even though you are very intelligent. Pharmacy schools requires a lot of discipline and dedication due to its heavy school load, so they might not admit you due to that reason. However, like the above post, they do make exceptions if you can explain your circumstances, but it has to be a really really good excuse! Good luck!
Our class profile was: ~1000 applicants, 258 interviewed, 119 accepted, GPA 3.4-3.8 (sciences and math), PCAT comp 360-434, 52% have degrees
let's just say that UB isn't the place for everyone. 3.4-3.8 GPA is nearly impossible to achieve for someone like me. and that PCAT score requirement just scares me, not to mention they used to require calc 2 + calc based physics x2 for admission.
