I'm geting a BS degree in Biology-Anthropology before application to pharmacy schools. First two years=not so good with a 2.9 GPA, worse, at a CC.was when I was not "pre-professional." I have three years left in undergrad(a little over two but I might as well do a quarter or two of post bac just in case I get in NOWHERE and it will help me IF i need to reapply).

I have ~20 months of pharm exp. and will stop this summer.

Among the classes I will be taking at a university are: organic chemistry, Human AP, Calculus, and two quarters of physics. I'm shooting for 3.8+'s in everything.

-----
to the point: anyone know about UWSOP....(University of Washington School of Pharmacy)...and generally how they view people who sucked big time then got better academically? I hoping to do VERY well on the PCAT. I will apply the end of my second (out of three) year at this university I'm going to.

That figure was intended as a recommended goal for that individual student to present a competitive application, not as a minimum standard set by the school for admissions.
