    I noticed in those who got a 90 percentile most were getting a BS/BA in a science field. Were there any others who got accepted into pharm school or got a 90 percentile who majored in some other non science area?

    There is a thread somewhere that states who has what major. Many people do not have science degrees or any degree for that matter. :)

    I met a girl from UCSF who was an Art Major, but also has a masters (I don't know what though). She already had a high gpa, took all the pre-requisites at city college, and was working as a pharmacy technician.

    Sorry for the rambling. People who are non-science major are equally favorable candidates, as long as you complete the pre-reqisites and do well in them.

    I agree! I know several people that have been accepted with a degree outside the science field.

    Well I guess that's good for me then. I'm a music major, but I can't say I'm up in the 90th percentile.

    Oh well I still hope I get into the school I want.

    I am also a music major (Bachelor's and Master's) and so far have gotten into one school and had 2 more interview offers. I was worried in the beginning too, but so far my major has made me stand out and so far not been a problem.

    Yea, I got an interview from UCSF, my dream school.
    My cello teacher told me that that it's a very good thing to tell them your interests and abilities. I guess they love those kinds of people.

    It's nice to meet another music major who's applying to pharm school. I hear that there are a lot out there, but I've never met one who is also applying. ;) Good luck to you.
