Has anyone gotten a D in one class and gotten into pharmacy school?
This is a good question, of course the class has to be taken over. I think if you do well the second someone has probably gotten in a school somewhere.
My friend got a D in O-chem and she got accepted into pharmacy schools (This was several years ago). She already graduated two years ago and got her PharmD. So if you got a D, just make sure to retake and do well the second time. That was what she did. Hope this help.
I got a D in Speech, several years ago, did I mention you should never take a public speaking class online, lol. I retook the class last year, got an A, and this year I was accepted to 3 pharmacy schools.
Just make sure to take it over, that's all they want to see, and make sure you go up at least two grades. You'll be fine, don't worry.
I got a D in GenChem II my freshman year because I didn't ever go. I retook it, got an A, and was accepted to pharm school this yr.
thanks guys!!! u all are so encouraging. i feel much better.
I have never gotten a D in my college years but i sure do have crap load of Cs
I got a D in College Math. Retook it and got an A.
Then took Calculus I II and III, and got all A's.
We'll see if I get in this year, is my first time applying.
I'll let you know
Do pharm schools use the new grade or the D or the average of both when determining your pre-pharm GPA?
It completely depends on the school. Some use the average of the 2 while others simply take the highest/most recent grade. Email the school and see what their policy is.
I've never gotten below a B and I got in!!
In all seriousness, as I've said before, schools notice the trend in grades rather than individual marks.
If you re-take the class and do well, that's the important thing.
What about Ws... does the same thing apply if you got a W and then took the class again for a grade? I guess they can't take a previous grade into account, but do a few Ws look bad? Most of mine were for engineering courses.
No Ds but I did have 2 Fs and 23 Ws. At UF they take both grades into account.
