Given how competitive it is these days, what schools are easier or more difficlut to gain acceptance? I've heard 1000 applicants for 35 spaces at some schools. Despite your numbers/ record, it must be an uphill battle. Which schools are safety schools?
It's kind of rude to post everyone's saftey schools. Some of my "safety schools" might be other students' first or only choice, or vice versa. Generally it's harder to get into established state schools, especially if you're not a resident of that state. Private schools can be easier (most likely because they are so expensive and don't have in-state quotas). Expect 1000+ applications at just about any school for next year though. I would apply to *several* schools, and not just what you've heard are "easy" schools.
I don't even think there is such a thing as a safety school for pharmacy anymore. I think most people myself included are happy getting in anywhere at this point. Schools that were "easier" to get in are getting as many apps as the other schools.
What is really tough is like in my case where there is only one COP I can go to. So if I don't get into UF, I will either have to keep apply to wear them down or change fields at that point. Neither option makes me happy. But I keep plugging along.
In regards to Texas A&M, I have friends that used to live here (Tampa Bay) that just moved back home to Corpus Christi, TX, and right now they attend the campus at Kingsville (?). They told me prior to moving that the guidance counselors told them that their pharmacy school would be opening in 2005. Hope this helps.
