SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
This is my first attempt at getting into pharmacy school and wasn't sure what my application looked like in comparison to others applying. I am a non-traditional student in my early 30s.
Undergrad GPA = 3.2
Graduated with B.S. in Agricultural Science, Minored in Biology
Completed Master of Science in Animal Agriculture
Graduate GPA= 3.8
Graduate Science GPA = 3.9
Biochemistry GPA=3.5 with 6 hours taken
PCAT Score = 79 composite
I have worked in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry for roughly 4 years.......
Yea, the user above pretty much summed it all up really well!
You are looking for comparisons so here are my stats:
Undergrad GPA: 3.48.
Post-bachelor undergrad GPA: 4.0.
Cum. GPA: 3.55.
Science GPA: 3.03.
Bach. of Arts in both Psychology and Anthropology.
Currently a post bach undergrad major in Biology.
And I have received 3 interviews out of 4 schools I've applied to.
So, you can now compare your stats w/mine. In my opinion, however, I think you look like a great and promising candidate and if you write a great PS, as above user stated, and have a great interview, I see no reason why you wouldn't get accepted to at least 1 school. (Though this depends on factors such as how well you interview, how many schools you apply to, etc). Based prely on stats though, I think you are a strong candidate for sure.
Hey, have you recieved any post-interview news yet? any rejection or acceptance? how long did it take for PharmCAS to caculate ur GPA?
The PCAT doesn't help but everything else screams "I could be a competant pharmacist."
If you dont get into the school that you prefer it is because of your PCAT. I can confidently say tht you will get into a school though.
