    What do (pharmacy) schools think of a W on a transcript?

    I’m currently in a biochemistry course that will not transfer as a required credit to the pharmacy school I want to attend. The one I needed to take, I switched out of last minute due to misinformation (lady on the phone at grad school told me it was OK- when it was in fact, not), now it’s too...

    Undergrad Work, does it matter anymore?

    I’m starting school in the fall and was just wondering if along the way through med school, residency, fellowship, etc. if you’re ever required to submit an undergrad transcript again or if any extracurriculars that you may have done in undergrad are ever brought up again. Thanks!

    Simply reporting a real-world experience, as I have seen it debated on here whether AMCAS can/will find out. Not salty about it or anything. - This was a year of Dual Enrollment. - He said he made decent grades there, so it probably wouldn't effect anything. - Not sure if his University...

    Transcript Evaluation (Non-US applicants)
