SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm a 4th year junior status undergrad majoring in Biochemistry. My last semester was terrible as it brought my GPA from a 2.8 to 2.3 This semester I got two B's and a D on my upper division cell bio class. A big blow! My current GPA is 2.3. I talked to my counselors and they advised me to take an easier major so I can boost my gpa at least to 2.5. They also recommended that I take 2 years post baccalaureate to take the pre-pharm courses I didn't take in my undergrad years and retake the classes I had bad grades in. I'm planning on taking 2 summer classes this summer. Intro physics and Lower division Chem 102(got an F so its a retake). My counselor recommends that I switch my major so I can quickly finish under two years such as psychology or journalism major. After I'm done with them I can go 2 more years in post. bach. I have no pharmacy experience whatsoever. I've tried applying to a hospital nearby but they closed the volunteer program and our school hospital is hard to get accepted for volunteer positions so I don't even bother trying to apply there. I haven't taken the PCAT yet. I know I'm supposed to do very good at it. But I don't know when I should take it? Should I take it in my undergrad years or while I'm in post bach? Do pharmacy schools look at your post bach GPA, your undergrad GPA or both? Which do they focus more on? I'm thinking if I switch my major to journalism, I wouldn't struggle so much and my grades could lift my damaged gpa at least to a 2.5 or 2.6 and I will do my best in post. bach to get a high GPA. I need a strategy on how to go about this? What would you do if you were me? I really don't want to give up on pharmacy.
