  1. uncertainty


    Apr 9, 2007 a bit confused about a few things about pharm school admissions...i'm a first year student in college.

    If my graduation from college is june 2010, do I apply the year (summer 2009) before to enter pharm school in fall 2010?

    If I am to apply the summer after my junior year, do I have to finish all my prerequisites (including the ones that vary at each school such as microbio, physiology, etc) before I apply or do I get until the end of my 4th year?

    also, how many years does it typically take to finish all the prerequisites?

    Thanks for the help. I am very very very nervous and confused right now.:oops:

    I'm assuming this hypothetical or you're planning on going full-time with no breaks. To answer the question if you want to matriculate in fall of 2010, then you would apply summer of 2009.

    Due date for completeion of prereqs varies slightly by school, but most are either the spring before matriculation or the summer before matriculation

    Varies widely depending on what's going on in your life. For me it was seven years, for other people its 2-3. I'd say 2-3 is more common.

    Don't be nervous, you've got tons of time. Take it easy. Spend some time in FAQs most of this information can be found there. It means more to you if you find it than if I spoon feed you.
