you dont even worry about financial aid until you are accepted first. they dont even know what kind of aid you will need. i think that statement is completely false. plus mine as well all of us quit school right now w/o financial aid.
I think it would only affect international students, where they're usually expected to be able to foot the bill for all 4 years without government loans. AFAIK, most if not all pharmacy schools are now considered graduate and professional school and no longer undergraduate college, meaning that you the student can no longer qualify for Pell grants and other non-loan, scholarship, or work study-related financial aid.
