It all comes down to the NAPLEX

    As I've been roughing it to choose my schools to apply to... I have been too meticulous about wallowing in the pros and cons of certain pharmacy schools. I realize that the most important thing is the % of students that pass the NAPLEX test.

    At SDN, there is quite a range of people from everywhere. I thought it would be useful to start a thread where people could simply list the % of their schools or schools that they know of.

    AACP has some helpful tables, but do not include this %.

        i thought UOP had a weak passing rate

        UOP had a weak cali exam passing rate but it was still higher than non cali schools.

        Cali adopted the NAPLEX in 2004, so the 2003 classes were the last to take the old Cali exam. Pass rates for the class of 2003 were 75% as a whole, the overall pass rate was 55-60% in 2003. Now those that failed this exam had to retest taking the NAPLEX and the number for the cali students is
        98.1% as a whole. Thats a 23.1% jump on the students that were not anywhere near the top of their class.

        The MPJE itself had rates of 99% UCSF, 92.1% WestrnU, 92% UOP, and 90% USC. Over all pass rate for the MPJE is 84.5%

          So I pose this question to you guys:

          which schools do people know of that have the LOWEST passing rate? :D this way, ppl will think twice about paying all that tuition money to go there :)


          I may be wrong (please correct me if I am), but I'm pretty sure Texas Southern has one of the lowest. Last I heard it was within the 60th percentile.
