Im thinking of switching from osteopathic school to pharmacy school? what are the best pharmacy schools in the nation? also, since the basic sciences in the first two year is about the same, do you think I can skip some classes?

Skipping classes is up to the school, but I doubt they are all that similar, and I doubt they would let you outright skip them. Unless you made a really big stink about it.

UCSF, U of Wash, and Washington State all have very good schools/colleges of pharmacy.

Yes, UCSF is a good school. Umm, the school in Houston Texas... Isn't there a list of the top ten pharmacy schools somewhere online? I know it's somewhere. You should just look it up.

That list, as I understand, is solely based on the amount of money granted for research. Not necessarily the quality of the school.

Some pharmacy schools (Creighton, for one) give you the opportunity to take challenge exams in some of the basic science courses.

After experiencing at the hospital and retail settings, I finally realize that there is no such best schools, it's the matter of indivitual's willingness to learn and improve.
