    1. UW
    2. WSU
    3. SU
    4. Wingate University
    5. Midwestern University - Chicago
    6. Albany College of Pharmacy
    7. Mercer University
    8. Creighton University

    I just wanted to let you know that Philadelphia Pharmacy school is impossible to get into as transfer. I emailed them in the spring and they told me that they only accepted 2 transfer students last year. Most students go to their pharmacy program right after high school (it is a six year program).

    I will apply probably to 5 or 6 schools. However, my choices will depend on my PCAT scores because I do not want to waste my money on the schools that I will definitely not make into.

    I only applied to 4, but would have applied to more if I took the PCAT or if I had a pharmacist recommendation.

    1. UCSF
    2. UCSD
    3. USC
    4. Western

    Luckily, I was able to get into Western. :)
