    Thank You for your good wishes, Nova has a 4 year Pharm.D. program, which includes 3 years of courses and 1 year of rotations. It's average accepted GPA is a 3.5 and above 80 PCAT scores. It depends on alot of factors, like experience, extra-curriculars, etc.

    Nova's program is great in that they start experiential learning right from the beginning, and ofcaurse, Ft. Lauderdale is beautiful.

    They do interviews and send acceptance letters on a rolling basis, so the earlier in the process the better your chances of acceptance.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks AGain

    They have 100% passing rate on the Naplex for numerous years. That should speak enough.

    Ugh, do ALL pharmacy schools have a dress code? This is the part of pharm school I am NOT looking forward to. What do you mean I can't wear baggy sweatpants, my Alpha Phi t-shirts, and flip-flops to class anymore?! LOL, welcome to the "professional" world...:smuggrin: :eek:

    Scrubs are sooo comfortable, you can just wear a T-shirt underneath, it gets cold inside, but, with scrubs you don't have to worry about picking out clothes in the morning, when you are in a rush.

    The first month or two, before the white coat ceremony, I believe they do not allow P1s to wear scrubs. I really like Nova's professionalism, they make you feel like ... OK, this is grad school, you are not in undergrad anymore.

    :D I am really excited about next year.

    Well, better than dress clothes at least. P1s are allowed to wear scrubs (solid color, matching) after the white coat ceremony. But, after you get the white coat you're supposed to wear it at all times too. That is something that they are strict with.

    For example, don't forget your white coat for an exam, or they won't let you take the exam.
