I am currently applying for admission to PharmD programs for entrance in 2015. Though my requirements are nearly complete, I have not taken the PCAT yet. I did take the GRE, as I originally thought I wanted to continue onto graduate school and scored a composite of 97%ile. I am feeling nervous about the PCAT as some of the science material covered I took classes in 4-6 years ago; obviously a lot of the material is no longer fresh in my mind. I'll be taking it in about 2 months and will continue to prepare for it until then. My stats are as follows: Overall GPA: 3.82 Pre-reqs: Chem I: A- Chem II: A Orgo I: A Orgo II: A Biology I: B- Biology II: A- Calc I: A Calc II: A Biostats: A Econ I: A Econ II: A Public Speaking: A Written Composition: A Anatomy/Physiology I: A Anatomy/Physiology II: taking next semester Physics I: Currently taking Physics II: taking next semester I have a B.S. magna cum laude from a top 50 school. My science GPA is slightly lower than overall GPA, due to a C- in an upper level bio class and a B in genetics. I am a certified pharmacy technician with nearly 2 years (several thousand hours, mostly full time) of work experience. I am expecting to have good to excellent recommendations from a Chemistry professor (had the highest grade in that class) and one of my staff pharmacists. I'm applying to several schools (top choice probably UIC) mostly in the Chicago area and am an Illinois resident. My question is what are my chances, and how worried do I need to be about my PCAT? Will scoring below 70%ile, for instance, really impact my application that much?
