    Western gives you 5 points if you have a bachelors degree by the time you send in your application. It is added to your score, not your GPA. GPA is 50% of your admission, pharmacy work/volunteer experience is 20%, interview is 20% and essay written at interview is 10%. The 5 points for the degree can really boost you up out of the middle of the pack.

    Not that it matters since I'm already waitlisted and my degree doesn't record until mid-June, but where did these numbers come from. Was it on their website or from a discussion with admissions, or what?

    If you go to one of their workshops they give you a powerpoint that has that info on it. Or at least that's how I knew.
