    I have read other posts in the SDN forums about graduating early, but I had a question as to how that affects your application. Excuse my ignorance seeing as I don't plan on applying yet but....

    I am considering graduating two quarters early for financial reasons (it saves at least 10k considering I dont want to take out extra loans if I don't have to), and I plan to devote the remaining time for clinical experience/research/etcetera, but is there a section of the application where you can address what you plan to do with your time after you graduate?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some people apply and are not in classes, so no, you don't have to worry about graduating early and explaining what you did.

    any volunteer, work, or other experience can be mentioned in the work or extracuriculars sections on PharmCAS. You usually put the date ranges of the activities on PharmCAS as well.
