OK, so I've searched and read through many, many posts. And, No I am not asking what my chances are of getting in to pharmacy school, because I know that no one here can tell me that. So please no comments saying that. What I want to find out is if my experience is unique or if you were on the admissions committee would my app. stand out in this area? I have not completed pre-reqs or the PCAT so I'm not asking about that. I'm asking about the other aspects of my application. Here's my past experience. Is it unique? -I am a Licensed Practical Nurse. -I will graduate with a BS in Community Health Promotion in December 08. -I have worked in a Substance abuse treatment facility for 13 years. -I am employed as a Health Educator. -I am a qualified HIV early intervention counselor for the state of Illinois. -I will be (hope to be) certified as a health education specialist by graduation. -I will be (hope to be) certified as an alcohol and other drug counselor by application time. -I volunteer with the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life. (This is not everything I plan on putting on my app., just the things I think definitely stand out.) I personally think my experience is an asset to the pharmacy field. Having knowledge of addiction and also having the health education background is great to have in a pharmacy career. Especially with the emphasis on pharmacists being members of the community that promote health. The pharmacy consultant that I work with also feels the same way, and she is also giving me a LOR. So, what do you think? Do you think this experience is something different and has a lot to offer?
