    Hi I am retaking Biol 3 the first time I took it I got a 2.3 this time probably 3.x. Will it doom my application that I didn't get an A. I am just not a biology person. For the last two year my cumulative GPA has been 3.5 and above. How much does pharmacy school care about biology?

    No, don't retake biology. B + A = 3.5 gpa averaged by pharmCAS anyways, why risk going up .5 when a B is a solid 3.0, assuming your school doesn't do +/- system

    You'll be fine, but you probably shouldn't have even wasted the time with the retake if you did better than a C the first time, and your cumulative is around 3.5. The two grades will be averaged on Pharmcas when they calculate your GPA.

    I got a B (or B+, can't remember) in biology and I got my interviews. No biggie.

    Er, really? What part of biology don't you like? I could see continuing into pharmacy if you didn't like learning about trees or something (actually, I pretty much hated that part). How is your A&P?
