Hello all, I am finishing my B.S. in biology this semester and after months having second thoughts about my current path, i've decided to return to my original choice of Pharmacy. I am currently scheduled to take the PTCE and will look to work as a tech for experience. I'm also thinking about retaking the two prereqs I earned a C in. What advice would any of you recommend me to maximize my chances going into the next cycle?

Honestly as long as you keep your GPA up and have pharmacy experience (which isn't mandatory but very helpful) you should be in good shape to at least get an interview.

Sounds like you have a plan. It may also help to volunteer in a health care setting, but not as much as becoming a pharm tech and retaking those Cs.

Is it frowned upon for an applicant not to be enrolled in school at the time of the application?
