    It's obvious you ran out of time on the QA section. I would retake the PCAT if I were you. Try to work on your test taking strategies to make sure you answer all the questions (even if you have to guess).

    What else did you use to study?

    Extracurriculars look good, but try to get some shadowing done and get a LOR from a pharmacist if you can. GPA is decent, see if you can raise it up some.

    Can you get in? Possibly to Probably. However, as an outsider ... Nothing looks stellar on your academic record. Solid, but nothing great. Furthermore, you're lacking pharmacy experience which is probably a factor that brings applicants like yours over the top.

    Honestly, you really should retake the PCAT. That QA score is rather ghastly.

    ghastly indeed...but it was rough.
    i have to admit i didnt study QA i was banking on scoring 80s on RC, Bio, Chem, and like 70 on verbal so i wouldnt really have to worry about QA
    i guess
    because study math is like sticking needles in my eyes.............for me
