    I was speaking with a couple of people from other schools and realized that a P1 in one school...isn't called a P1 in another...but a P2.

    every school has a different way of categorizing what stage of school you are in.....what is your school's way?

    first off to clarify:

    1) what year did you start "pharmacy school" according to your school?
    2) what graduating class are you going to be in?

    3) explain how your school does things (is it a mixture of prepharmacy with pharmacy school....do you need a degree before you enter?)

    3. You need the prereqs completed before you enter. I'm not sure if you need the actual AA degree but you don't need a Bachelor's degree. After entry it's 4 years.

    unlike some other schools, temple only has 4 professional years. we have no known pre-pharmacy program who gets advantages over other applicants.

    so in my case
    1) 2004
    2) 2008
    3) you need complete pre-req to apply but more than half (i am sure more this year), of my classmates have BS or BA

    at nova

    1)2004
    2)2008

    3) This is also a 4 year program that you apply after you meet the pre-reqs. A bachelors isn't required but they have an advantage over non-bachelors.

    3. UF requires an AA degree, plus all the science prereqs. You can do it in 2 years with a heavy load and attending summer session.

    I started in 2004 and will graduate in 2008.

    We are considered P1's the first year and then starting with next Fall we'll be considered P2's.

    Our school requires nearly 3 years of prerequesites now, but a BS is not required. However, I think more that 75% of incoming students already have their BS degree.

    we have students that come from our undergraduate program but they are not considered anything other than pre-pharm like everyone else
