I have never in my life dealt with 2 different candidates with "all else being equal." Usually one was better than the other one way or other but the grades were never ever in consideration. And if truly indeed all else were equal, I will take the better looking candidate...So in the interest of educating me, may I ask why, all else being equal,
I will look at experience and personality. But never grades as long as they're licensed. Yup C = PharmD. Grades just means better test taking skills... there are so many other important elements in hiring practic.you wouldn't look at someones grades in addition to their experience/personality? Does C = degree for you too?
And that is why GPA is not listed on the resume. Now if you worked 30 hours per week while going to pharmacy school and made 4.0, congrats..either you're good at test taking or you never slept. But if you worked 8 hours every other week and made 4.0, it's really not that impressive. I'll hire the 2.5 person who's worked their ass off while going to school.
