    Hi, I'm looking at which pharmacy schools to apply to with my current GPA of 2.9~3.0.
    I didn't do well at my first college where I got dismissed (<1.0 gpa).
    Then at a CC I got an A.S. with 3.7 gpa, and at a current school I I'm getting A's in upper level science courses with 3.6 gpa. I've built good relationships with my professors and did various EC including research experience. If I score 85+ on the PCAT and apply early, do I have a shot at these schools?

    Not sure about SUNY Buffalo, U of COL or Purdue - no experience with applying to those three. But U. of MD. YES! Their class size is huge! ~265-300 students accepted per year. I think half the applications get an interview invitation, maybe more.

    Do you know if U of Maryland offer any financial aid to out of state students?
