Yes, you must take them. I don't know of any school that will let them slide.melonld said:Is it really important to meet all the requirements of prerequisite courses? I don't have any credits of economics or English composition. Will it hurt my application? Must I make up for them?
Not only do school require the courses they list, but most will hold you to the number of credit hours. I was missing one credit hour under "humanities" and ended up having to take an extra class to cover that single hour.melonld said:Is it really important to meet all the requirements of prerequisite courses?

Most Pharmacy schools will accept your community college courses, but if you want to be positive, then ask the schools you plan on applying to.ttran01 said:im from california currently in community college and taking most of the pre-reqs there and finishing up probably 3 other pre-reqs after i transfer to a 4-year...will i end up having to retake the community college courses? do pharm schools accept the courses i took there?

I took macroeconomics my freshman year, thinking I was going into business. I hated it, decided Im not doing business, and took it pass/fail because I figured Id get a B in the class. I actually would ahve gotten a B-, however, since I changed the grade option, I have a pass in the class. pharm schools require letter grades for pre-reqs!!!
so now I may ultimately have to take another econ class!!!!!!
and it really sucks in my situation to take it over the summer, because I wont be able to get an internship or do research, and my community college is ($250 per credit), while my suny is $181 per credit, but then Id have to stay at my suny and pay more for housing...
to think that they could make an exception for one tiny class but no...
$250 per hour for a community college?! My state university was only $125 per hour, and the CC was $36 (and I graduated in 2000--I'm not THAT old!).AtomicLuv said:...and my community college is ($250 per credit), ...(
a504n Are you Xavier student?a504n said:If they're listed as a pre-requisite for that school, you will eventually have to take them before you enroll in Pharmacy school. I doubt it will hurt your application, because a lot people finish up their pre-requisites the semester before they enroll in Pharmacy school. I was accepted to Pharmacy school for the Fall '06 semester, and I am missing one class, Theology. That is the only class holding me back from Pharmacy school. I spoke to the school and they told me if I don't get credit for Theology by the end of this summer, I will not be admitted to Pharmacy school and I would have to apply again next year. They strictly said, any deficiencies in the pre-requisites will result in my acceptance rescinded or withdrawal from the College of Pharmacy in the event of enrollment.
I'm from New Orleans and because of Hurricane Katrina, the schools in New Orleans that offer Theology don't have a summer semester this year. They are in the middle of thier "Spring '06" semester making up for the lost semester due to Katrina. So I had to register at the University of St.Thomas in Houston, TX for thier Summer II session which is 4 weeks long. Even though Theology has nothing to do with pharmacy, I still have to take it, because my pharmacy school is a Catholic school, and I must take Theology to attend their pharmacy school.

trice13 said:What physics courses are accepted, most schools just list that they require two physics courses with labs.
I think the general physics deals with algebra and trigonometry, where as the engineering physics deals with calculus.tdkneo said:that's the same thing im wondering........which one is better, the general physics or the physics for engineering (this is the one i took), or are they all the same?
