So I'm extremely new to SDN (this is my first post) so be merciful pls :)

I just wanted to know if Pharmacy schools take into account your new GPA if you have retaken a class or two. Doing so has really helped my GPA so I was wondering if Pharmacy schools would consider it.

Also, do any other schools except for DO schools honor grade forgiveness (Such as dental schools maybe?)

Thank you all in advance.

Welcome to SDN,

Based on my knowledge, Pharmacy schools do not accept grade forgiveness "like DO schools do" because your GPA will be calculated through PharmCAS.
Best of luck!

Most schools will take into account courses that you retook for higher GPA

Schools will average the difference (C and A would be B) or outright replace it

But it depends on the school and you will need to contact the school you are interested in.

Not sure about grade forgiveness tho. There was no such thing at my school so I have no idea. Is that similar to "withdraw"
