Hi everyone. Just an opinion I wanted to sound off - and I think others have mentioned this before, but I think I'm getting concerned with how many people are focused on numbers alone (i.e. GPA and PCAT). Even if someone were to get high marks in both, this may make them competitive academically, but this is not all that a school will evaluate a candidate on. So, what bothers me is this, this constant emphasis on numbers, and the way certain individuals (whom I've spoken to, not on this board) are confident in their admission to pharm school based off of the numbers and what school they went to. I'm not saying that they do not count, but my point is that the ideal candidate will be well-rounded, not just have the stats to prove it. Not sure if I'm overreacting, but I feel strongly that as a pharmacist I need to provide quality care to the patients I am entrusted to. Getting a 4.0 GPA and 99% on my PCAT does not necessarily mean I have the compassion and drive to care for my patients. I hope my point is coming across.
