    Hello All. My name is Mark and I will be applying to the following pharmacy schools for fall entry 2014;
    Albany College Pharm/Health Science
    D'Youville College
    Fairleigh Dickinson University

    Rutgers The State Univ of NJ-School of Pharmacy
    St. John Fisher College Rochester
    University at Buffalo Sch of Pharmacy

    I have a 3.35 G.P.A and I am going to graduate with a BS in pharmacology next year.
    My PCAT preliminary score report is as follows
    - Verbal: 409-63
    - Biology: 411 - 63
    - Reading: 392 - 36
    - Quantitative ability: 410: 67
    - Chemistry: 434: 91
    - Composite: 411: 70

    - 3 good recommendation letters [2 professors (biochemistry and pharmacology) and 1 faculty (P.I.)]
    - 30 hours of hospital volunteer experience
    - 100+ hours in biochemistry and social science research laboratories.


    I know that my results are not impressive at all, but I want to know what my chances are at the designated schools. Any suggestions or comments are much appreciated.

      You'll probably get into all those schools.. Very well rounded. Pcat is good enough and GPA should be good enough. Only thing maybe is not having pharmacy experience.

        I can tell you right now Rutgers will not accept you. Why? They primarily accept students straight out of high school for their 0-6 program. Any seats remaining (VERY few) are due to students who fail out/drop out of the program which you will then compete for. This could be 1000 applicants for 20 seats.
