I was enrolled at a university for 4.5 years and accumulated a 2.33 gpa. My last semester at the university, I had many personal problems the affected my grades and ended up failing 12 of the 16 credits I attempted. I decided then that I needed time away from school to mature as a student before attempting any more classes. I have most of my pharmacy pre-reqs complete and have not taken the PCAT. I plan to re-begin taking classes again this fall, 8 months after finishing my most recent semester, however I plan to take my future classes at a community college as cost is now a major factor. Many of the classes I plan to take will be retakes so that I can raise my GPA. Assuming I do fairly well on the PCAT (planning to spend 4-5 months studying for it), am able to raise my GPA to around 3.0ish through new CC classes and retakes (and maybe 1 or 2 retakes at university level), what are my chances of getting in? I will have at minimum 3-4 years experience as a retail tech at the time of applying, with multiple outstanding LORs and strong interview/writing skills. However, I have a bad history of retaking many classes and am not sure how retaking some at a CC will look on my app (every class I have taken/retaken at this point has been at the aforementioned university). I do not plan to apply until next year (fall 2019) in order to give myself enough time to complete 2-3 semesters of classes. Also, please spare me the lecture of trying to convince me that I will not succeed in pharm school or should change my plans. I have reached a point mentally where I know for a fact that this is what I want to do, and am wiling to do WHATEVER it takes to reach this goal. EDIT: I also do not currently have my bachelor's, nor do I plan to have it when I apply next year.
