    Hi guys! I'm applying to ACPHS Albany campus for next fall 2015. I have a cumulative GPA of 3.86, my PCAT score is 70th percentile, and I am still looking for some pharmacy experience. I was recently accepted to Temple Pharmacy but i couldn't go there. Do I have any chance of being accepted to ACPHS? Please help!!

    I also applied to ACPHS but the Colchester campus. For pharmacy experience you could apply to like CVS or Rite Aid or any type of pharmacy. That's what I did. I tried to go the volunteer route but everywhere I went I was told I couldn't volunteer because it would violate the HIPAA law. And with basically a 3.9 you will get in anywhere as you can see with Temple so you shouldn't worry

    ACPHS has a program that allows you to enter PharmD after 2 years of Bachelor's. You only need PCAT in 26th percentile.

    I think that's the problem with most programs. Most cost $40,000+ per year, professors come straight out of residency so they have no teaching experience, and the students that get accepted have 26% PCAT which is very low considering we are dealing with a professional school.

    The 26th percentile for PCAT is the cut-off for those admitted straight from 2-year BS program without going through admission process.
