I'm not a pharm major, but I had a question nonetheless.

Freshman year, I realized every other freshman had moved (sometimes) hours and hours away to plan to attend the pharm school at my undergrad.
When I finally asked why some people chose an out-of-state undergrad school for pharmacy, I was told that they don't deal with the PCAT, but solely base who they allow into the program on an interview, grades, etc etc.

How is that possible? (I wish I didn't have to take an admission test for dental school, jeez).:rolleyes:

I don't know anything about pharm or pcats, I'm just posting out of complete curiosity.

Pharm schools (as do a lot of grads schools) have differing requirements, so just blame it on what the school wants. You should be pleased to know more and more schools are requiring the PCAT though. ;)

Good luck on the DAT! That is a test I never want to take!
