    So i recently submitted my application for pharmacy school, and my overall cumulative gpa is about a 3.2 on my transcript. PharmCAS calculated my science gpa to be a 2.5, but its because they factored in repeated courses that I've failed. Will schools base it off of that GPA, or calculate their own gpa and look at my individual grades and seen I've improved?

    You'd have to ask the school if they recalculate or not. The school I applied to does not recalculate at all, for any reason. It really depends on the school.

    Schools will look at upward trends, but it's important to realize that if a school does not recalculate your GPA they may not even look at your total application/transcript since your sGPA/pre-req GPA may be below their specific cutoff.

    It really depends on the school. Some of recalculate it based on your recent 70 units but MOST of the school usually just the GPA calculated by PharmCAS. PharmCAS is not nice about repeated courses because it takes the average of your two grades.

    All you need to get into pharmacy school is a pulse and proof that you qualify for $200k+ in student loans.

    It went well! I did end up emailing the schools and they did say that they recalculate. Other schools don’t. It really depends on the school. I was accepted to Binghamton and touro.

    It's mostly true nowadays. Schools are almost begging students to apply and enroll.

    The schools I applied to seem like they don't recalculate. Which honestly sucks. I got a bachelors in biology and had to retake a non-preq class (Senior level Bio class) and it hurt my GPA even though I don't need the class for pharmacy school
