I apologize if this question was asked before, but do pharmacy schools look at your more recent grades? My first two years I had around a cumulative 3.1, but the last two years I had a 3.6. Do pharmacy schools look at that upward trend and take this into account? Or do they look at just the overall and don't specifically look for an upward trend? Or is every pharmacy school different? Any input would be appreciated, the best of luck to everyone applying this cycle!

For programs that use pharmcas, they will first look at your overall gpa. Once they decide to evaluate your application, then they will look at your trend.

I don't know about programs that do not use pharmcas although I'm pretty sure it's the same.
