First off, greetings from a fellow Badger! PharmCAS allows a maximum of 4 letters of rec. Most universities require that one of the letters be from a science or math professor and also one from a pharmacist. It differs from university to university, so I would make sure to check the individual requirements of the schools you are applying to.

Like the above poster said, PharmCAS only allows 4 max. It's awesome that you have so many options, however, choose 3-4 people (mixture of pharmacists and professors) that can speak about your strengths in different ways. You don't need 4 letters that repeat the same information. If each pharmacist can speak about you in different ways, then by all means, it does not hurt. However, if they know you under the same circumstances and will probably be repeating the same information, then one is good enough.
