    i know that Wingate does this and to be honest its such a lifesaver because my overall GPA is like a 2.8-2.9 but my pre-req. GPA is like 3.42. HUGE difference! do you think all pharmacy schools take pre-req GPA into consideration? i mean i dont think its fair to hold a senior w/ over 110 hours to the same standard as sophmores with only 30 hours.

    Most schools consider the prerequisites courses GPA. However if you are senoir or have a bachelor they look at your overall and also the consistency in your year by year GPA. If you are able to maintain a certain line of GPA that looks good for your application. For instance you are able to maintain a 3.00 for four year but your science GPA is like 3.42. Then you have a pretty good chance to get in

    I know no one here really talks much about North Dakota State University much, but since I'm from ND, I know for a fact that they only look at pre-req GPA.
