What is a site where I can find official pharmacy school rankings?

Also what type of pharmacists own the most (without holding an executive position) and how much do they make?

There is no such thing. YOu can check the sticky thread to see school stats and draw your own conclusions based on GPA and applicant/acceptance ratios.

There are no current rankings for pharmacy schools. The ones you find online are 10 years old and not accurate.

What do you mean "own the most"? Do you mean stock in the company that they work for, or how many toys are in their garage?

The pay varies by location and what you do.

US News rankings are based on research grants. It's meaningless.

Worthless indeed. Please oh please stop paying attention to a stupid ranking number. There are so many things that go into making a school a good fit for you, and ranking number isnt one of them.

I guess his "fit" is in the numbers game. If he wants to know of the Harvards of Pharmacy School, let him. Give him a break, he's new to this.

Pharmacy is NOT a "where you got your MD/JD/MBA/PhD" type of profession.

Well, UCSF is the Harvard of Pharmacy School.

Also note that not all the schools, especaily the private schools, participate in the rankings...so it is hard to get an accurate view of how each school measures up.

UCSF is tops. I think even other schools will admit to that.

So. Harvard is harder to get into than any other school, but it's not better than every school on Earth. It's just a facade of prestige that's an ingrained part of American culture. Everyone is so enamoured by UCSF, I have no idea why. They are just a school that teaches the same stuff as everyone else. Maybe their graduate program is outstanding, but if you honestly think their PharmD program is the "best", I'm going to have to scream at the emperor for not wearing any clothes.

hey, we are going to be classmates this fall! :D

But yeah, these rankings really only tell half the story. I don't suggest that anyone should seriously use these when determining schools. Do the research on your own to decide which school is going to offer you the best education.
