    Are there any organizations (clubs, associations, etc) that I can join as a pre-pharm student to help make me a stronger candidate for entrance into pharmacy school? I've looked into a few of them and they were only for students already in pharmacy school. Any input would be appreciated.

    I was in NCPA (National Community Pharmacists Association) and ACS (American Chemical Society) as an undergrad. A few of my classmates were in APhA (American Pharmacists Association). I don't think that they restrict membership to most clubs. You might have to get a different type of membership, or pay different dues, but you should be able to join. Some schools have a pre-pharm or pre-professional society too. I was also in that, and it was pretty interesting. We brought in professional students from all over and interviewed them about their class/social lives/application process. Sometimes they offered application/essay workshops, etc.

    I was going to start a pre-pharm club at my university - except for one minor problem....I was the only pre-pharm student! Now that I think about it though, I should've started one because then I would have made myself president and I would have never been late to or missed my own "meetings". :D
     
  6. Are you just talking about pharmacy specific clubs? If not, I highly recommend being involved with your student government and different clubs offered at your school. I think the adcoms really like to see involvement in things like that.
