    I've applied to a few 0+6 universities like Rutgers and USP, but I'm not sure what my odds of getting in are!

    3.75 GPA ( Near 4.0 in science. )
    29 ACT
    Shadowed a pharmacist, wrote a decent personal statement.

    Do I have a shot even?

    I am about to graduate from a 0-6 program. Your GPA and ACT are fine. Extracurriculars in high school make a big difference on an application. Where you involved, did community service, worked a part time job, etc?

    I was part of NHS and I volunteered at a couple pharmacies in the summer if that helps.

    Like I said before, everything you've done will play into your admission. My school put a lot of emphasis on taking AP and honors classes, along with being actively involved during high school. Leadership experience does help but I don't think it was essential. Also having a part time job showing that you can balance work with school might help.
