    You mean like how many states you can be licensed in? I don't think there is a limit.

    Not exactly. You know how there are a set number of medical licenses a state can hand out every year. i was wondering if there was something similar for pharmacy.

    I know there are limits to how many people a school can graduate per year. I think its controlled by the AACP (American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy), or something like that.

    From what I heard, LIU had to pay fines last year because they graduated more people than what they were allowed to. I think they are allowed to graduate 204/year, usually LIU accepts like 220-230 students and predicts that 20-30 will drop out.

    Usually, when people make it into the program they start working their *** off, so drop outs didn't happen.
