    I know that this question might be sent back to PCAT questions, but this question would possibly best be answered by someone who is in Pharm school already. Has someone taken the PCAT more then once (or know someone who has) and was accepted into school. I hope the answer would be encouraging but maybe not. Thanks

    This is an advising question. Moving to the PCAT forum. :)

    Alot of people take the PCAT more than once.

    I hope someone who views the other pharm forums would chime in. Unfortunately I don't think they would (except those trying to get into the school). Sometimes it isn't cut and dry to place a question like mine in the PCAT forum (just because it has the PCAT in it) because the person who would be most insightful would be someone who went through the experience of PCAT scores already. Also Bananaface did those who took it mopre then once get accepted?

    I know plenty of people that were accepted after taking the PCAT more than once.

    Same here. Retaking the PCAT for improvement is nothing to get discouraged about.

    Most schools will tell you that they see taking the pcat more than once as a sign of dedication and perseverance. Also, most will take your highest score, so you absolutely should take it more than once if you feel like you can do better.
