    Soooo I'm thinking about applying to FAMU. They don't require the PCAT (which is awesome) but I've also heard that makes it harder to get into. Does anyone have any information on the application process? GPA??

    I think they wait for the pre pharmacy (0-6) students to be reviewed and then transfers

    Yea I've heard that is the timeline , deadline is the 1st I believe pre pharm gets looks then the rest. In previous years there has been a decline in prepharmacy students therefore clearing space for transfers ,a friend from last cycle told me that and I also saw it on previous app cycle treads ! Good for transfers lol anybody in pre pharm there ?

    I heard they are thinking about doing a rolling admissions this year. And yes I've heard they accept progression students first and then transfers. Is it hard for transfers to get in??
