    Hello, all. I was wondering if you guys could offer me your honest opinions in regards to my pre-pharmacy credentials (listed below) and what you think my chances of being accepted into a College of Pharmacy in the fall of 2009 are.

    - I currently attend a community college where I have a 4.0 GPA
    - I intend on transferring to Texas A&M University in the near future to obtain the pre-requisites not offered at said community college
    - I am currently employed by CVS/Pharmacy where I work as a Certified Pharmacy Technician 25 to 35 hours a week
    - I am an active new member of my community college's honor society, Phi Theta Kappa
    - I am a peer mentor at my community college where I tutor chemistry a few hours a week
    - I volunteer in the pharmacy of my local hospital approximately 10 hours every other weekend

    Any and all suggestions for improving these credentials are welcomed.

    Thanks!

      You sound like you're right on track! What about taking the PCATs? Did u want to stay in state or out of state? You sound like a good candidate on paper. What about your essay writing skills? The schools want that "X" factor. Anything interesting about you? Hardships? etc.

        After I complete the summer courses I have enrolled in I will have obtained 47 credit hours and will lack organic chem (both semesters), physics, microbiology, and a small handful of ultimately irrelevant electives. I plan to submit applications to SWOSU, UH, TTU, and UT. I will take the PCAT in October and I am petrified (lol).

          Don't be scared about the PCAT, study and you'll do fine. And you look like you're on the right track to getting into pharm school...keep it up!

            Hello all. I originally typed this post over six years ago... I am now a practicing pharmacist and LOVE what I do.

            There were good times, bad times, and a whole lot of studying.

            But believe in yourself, and have a solid family/friend support network and you'll do just find.

            God Bless,
