    Hi All,

    When applying to pharmacy school, you have to report every college you went to correct? Does that consist of college courses that you took in HS too? also, how would they know if you do not report a course? Im a predent, and i was talking to some of my prepharm friends and their under the impression that you can select which schools to submit. I'm certain that is untrue, at least for dental school (and probably every other graduate/professional program). but just in case, can anyone confirm this? thanx.

      Can't speak for non-PharmCAS schools, but if you are applying through PharmCAS, yes you will have to enter all classes that show up on your transcript, even if they were audit hours. Yes, you will have to show college courses you took in hs, and you will have to have the official transcript sent from whatever college you were registered at while you were in hs. You will have to send official transcripts from every college to PharmCAS, and they will audit them against what you put on the application, so if you leave something out they will see it. Also, assuming you are accepted, then you will also have to send another copy of all your official transcripts to your pharmacy school for their records, so there might be a problem there if you omitted classes on purpose.

        Your friends are wrong, it is every school's policy to receive transcripts from ANY and ALL previous post high school institution attended. Now if you took a class at Podunk community college and you don't send in that transcript, will the school know? Probably not, but you are being deliberately deceitful. Maybe you transfered those community college credits to another school at some point in the past and that school records the credits on their transcript, now you might find yourself in a sticky situation.

          All schools require you to submit some form of a timeline of events that lead up to your enrollment.

          They ask for your schools and the dates you were there. If you have a time period without any schooling - they will ask you why. If you have transferred you HS Dual enrollment or AP credits to another university, they can put 2 and 2 together.

          That being said - no school will go around to every other school asking if you have attended said school. I for one attended a boon-dock tech school while serving in the military. The "A" in windows 2000 professional was not worth transferring to me - so I didn't. There is no gap in my timeline because I was serving in the military at the time. This class has, and probably never will show up ever again. You need to meet a certain criteria to ignore those credits.

          If you have the timeline covered ***and*** you have not transfered the credits to any other institution ***and*** you really dont want them to show up... then no, you do not need to notify Pharmcas and transfer those credits.

          Wow - that was a bit long
