SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
Rutgers is a 0-6 Pharmacy school so the number of seats available for students transferring into the 1st professional year vary from year to year. The best thing you can do is be a solid applicant.
I actually am a P1 at Rutgers who applied in as a transfer. The way the 0+6 works is, in fact, that the only requirement to from pre-professional to P1 is to meet the minimum GPA (there is also an interview, but that is more of a formality).
As a transfer, the number of seats available depends how many people don't make the minimum GPA or decide to leave the program for other reasons. Everything FireyDragon (above) said is 100% correct.
Degree is not required, but it does help your chances. My transfer class has both degree-holders and non-degree holders. PCAT is also recommended if you are a transfer applicant. To give you an idea, this year they accepted about 30 transfers. The year before, only 10-15, I think.
My advice would be just be the best applicant you can be, make sure you follow their prereq requirements, and apply to other schools as well. I've heard stories of transfer applicants with 4.0s get rejected... so nothing's guaranteed. It's the nature of the game.
If you're a school-to-school transfer they'll contact you at the end of May-beginning of June time period. I'm not entirely sure about external transfers. I would guess middle of April, but I think JSGANDHI could answer that one better since I was a school-to-school.
