    Your GPA is great so I'm not sure. I would think that your GPA plus any experiences you have would balance out your PCAT. It's not like your PCAT composite is super-low.

    Quant. 404 61%
    Chem. 458 98%

    Composite 435 95%


    -----

    This was my first PCAT, however, I did read about how difficult it would be to finish the Math section and yet I still did not get to the last 15 questions. I'm actually decent in math, so it's a little depressing knowing that I would have a better score if I could have managed my time better. Also a little disappointed in the the reading score. I want to get into school at the University of Georgia. [Avg. Composite for UGA was 90% in 2006] I only have a 3.2 GPA with a BS in Biochemistry from UGA 1996, 4.0 GPA from my 1 year at Georgia State taking (Neuroscience, Immunology, Anatomy & Physiology, Molecular Biology, and some other 'ologies. 2005). My GPA from undergrad is not really me, it's my ball and chain. As an undergrad I would study Physical Chemistry when it wasn't my turn at the PlayStation :cool: If I wern't already working 55hr/week and 9hr/week at the Hospital, I would probably take another year of classes and throw some more A's at my GPA.
    I'm about to start volunteer work at Grady Hospital in the Pharmacy dept. in a few weeks.

    I hope I can get accepted to at least one school, but I'm not overly confident. I think I'll be a much better applicant next year! Till then I'm stuck in Atlanta doing IBM tech support from my cubicle :mad:

    I'm waiting for my mailman. What is taking him so long?? But I already got accepted with a 59 PCAT and 3.2 GPA. I wouldn't bother taking it again if I got a 79. I'm just begging for a 70 with my Jan PCAT so I can hopefully get into CCP :p

    I don't have a degree. I do have a lot of pharmacy experience. I have to work to support myself. I'm currently not even working in a pharmacy. I was doing 2 jobs at once, but I quit the pharmacy one cause it didn't pay me enough and I told my interviewers that too. They even told me it was a smart choice...hahaha...I guess they liked me cause I dared to say that.

    I don't have a degree because I don't think I will have money to pay back student loans if I don't get into pharmacy school, so I just took random harder, upper science courses such as Biochemistry (full year), pharmacology, anatomy&physiology, etc..etc...but I'm sure a lot of students in here have those also. I got C's in O-chem. I'm just a really average student grade-wise, but I'm an extraordinary individual...:D

    For South University, the minimum PCAT requirement is 60%. I still haven't received my January score yet, but on Pharmcas it got posted yesterday and they called me yesterday. Maybe I did better on my PCAT. I just really hope I did.

    Neopentane, since you have good GPA, you should apply to schools that don't require PCAT.

    I would retest if you're aiming for UF. I believe that they prefer PCATs to be 80+. Kaplan has a good course, but it's pretty expensive. You could probably find a used Kaplan book to study from though.

    1. I am a girl. I think someone earlier referred to me as a male.
    2. I doubt they sent them out in alphabetical order because my last name begins with a "Y."

    The range for UF is 70-99. My GPA is above their 3.5 average. I think with a 76 they would at least review my application hopefully. I am hoping to get into this fall. If i don't then i will retest

    I have an interview at UF at the Orlando Campus on Friday (my 1st choice) I go to UF in Gainesville now tho, but I had a 73 PCAT in October with a 3.2 GPA. I have 2 yrs pharmacy experience and REALLY good LORs... it's not all about the grades - but then again I am below the UF average. Haven't gotten my new Jan PCAT scores yet.

    Hi,
    I just got my scores, the composite is 83; It could have been higher if I had done better in both English based parts, my percentile is 28 in comprehension and 47 in verbal, will I be able to get into a school with this?

    Hi,
    I'm not complaining, I just don't know how it works. I recently got my citizenship and this is my first time of taking this test. I just hope the school I applied to doesn't look at just those two low grades, you know must people believe that foreigners aren't good in English and I sure proved them right.

    I disagree!!! No matter how good you are at speaking English, how are you going to compete with native speakers? I got in with a 59 and have another interview coming up and I know plenty of people that got in with the score of around 70. There are very few schools that look at every sections, and even if they do, they look more at the science and math sections.

    I hope the relatively low scores in Chemistry and Quant will be acceptable. Now we're just waiting to hear from schools.

    My composite score was 405 and My percentile was 57%.

    How come people who got 420 got 84% and I only have 57%??? I'm confused...and sad.

    Apparently different parts of the test carry different weights. From what I can tell, the verbal ability/comprehensive/writing count for more than the other parts.
