I started off as a pre-med student and am switching over but am still a bit confused on the pharm application process/ options for applying. I graduated college a few years ago with a pretty low gpa and despite not taking all of the pre-requisite classes opted to take the MCAT anyway. Obviously, I didn't do so great. Over the last few years I have been completing an SMP and have done exceptionally well but while here, have decided that I am interested in pharm. I suppose I'm a bit of a non-traditional applicant. UGPA: 3.06 SGPA: 2.8 GGPA:3.97 I have loads of research hours at top facilities, however, no publications, plenty of volunteering and shadowing, great letters that I can use, good extracurriculars and about to finish my masters. What are typically the application dates for applying to pharm school. I was talking to one pharmacist and she said that people typically submit their applications around december but have been looking around online and saw one person say June while another user bosts applying March of last year and having an acceptance by the end of the following month?? Lol if that is truly the case I will submit an app to whatever schools you guys recommend by the end of this week. Id rather not take the PCAT to be accepted if I dont have to and with all of my other questions, and any other helpful insight that can be offered into the process, was wondering what schools I should be looking into and how to go about applying?
