    I don't think anyone here can beat my number of applications: I'm currently on #4 (after five years of uni), still waiting to hear the decision on my alternate list status. Who knows, maybe I'll give it another shot if things don't go my way this year. (But, power of positive thinking: I will make it this year! I will make it this year!)

    3 re-applications over 4 years? 4 applications over 5 years? Now that is determination. Hopefully they take it as a sign of desire to be a pharmacist, rather than an obsessively compulsive psychotic tendency and inability to take a hint. ;)

    I was just wondering what you did different when you re-applied? Did you change your personal statement?

    Improved my GPA, obviously, each year..

    And wrote different 'letter of intent' each time.

    I'm concentrating on my job this year. Then I'll go back to school and re-take some classes and take upper division classes while re-apply to pharm schools. I just want to rest and concentrate on working as an entry level researcher.

    Should I retake classes that I received B in? If I received a C at one school, can I retake at another school? I graduated with a bio degree.

    i'm in florida right now and i'm having a hard time trying to register for classes that I got a C in. I got a C for a class in a 4 year university and I want to retake it in a community college but they won't let me because they say I passed the class and florida law doesn't allow students to retake classes with C or better in state schools.

    what can I do?

    Have you started retaking any courses? That's an awesome PCAT score! And have you been getting any interview offers?

    Don't give up. I admire your persistance! If pharmacy is your passion, giving up is not an option (cheesy i know)

    This is my 2nd time reapplying...I'll am going to continue applying until they let me in.
