my gpa is 3.9 and 92%ile on PCAT
Hi, just a question, I know Albany doesn't require PCATs, do you have a degree and any experience in the field? Just curious, that's my school of choice, but I won't be ready to apply for another year (or longer) and with each passing year, there are more applicants and it's harder to get in. I'm hoping that by the time I'm ready to apply more pharm schools in the area pop-up. (hey, one can only hope).

I don't have a degree, however I have 3+ years of undergraduate work. Also I've worked as a pharmacy technician for a year, an assistant health coordinator, and have been a part of this program called Impact Health that visits various sites in the community and I conduct HbA1c tests on diabetics.

Thanks first of all....and secondly no problem.... here: I will graduate this august with a bachelors in Biochemistry from Alvernia College, Reading PA. Its a small college really...but knowing all your prof.'s personally really helps...particularly for the reccomendations. My GPA is 3.993 and PCAT is 98%. But i think the important thing is to have all pre-reqs complete-- last year i applied to three colleges and didn't get in....so... i just worked really hard for this year....G'Luck... :thumbup:
