Hello everyone, I am sorry if it seems like I am bombarding your forums. Mods please take any action if this thread is repetitive (did a simple search) but I am curious to learn as quickly as possible. The only pre-reqs I have left after this fall is physics 1 and 2 and a macroeconomics class. I have not taken my PCAT and would take the January PCAT if need be. I do not have LOR's, although I have the 3 professors lined up. Nova's deadline is the 5th of January. So far I have just over a 3.8 school GPA. I have no pharmacy experience but I do have research experience (USDA internship). Do you think I can submit before the deadline, self-study for the PCAT this fall hope for a decent score and at least be looked at? I know the LOR would be a bottle neck but I am curious what are your opinions are. I was actually thinking of just taking it slow and doing it right one time. Meaning, I would apply for 2013 and use the entire year of 2012 for the application. I would be able spread out my courses, physics 1 during the spring, take the PCAT Kaplan course during the summer, take the July PCAT (september PCAT if needed) physics 2 during fall 2012. Maybe volunteer get some volunteer work in. Thank you all in advance.
