    Do you guys know which schools have a large percentage of pharmacy students with a bachelor's degree? I mean schools that either require/prefer people with a degree or schools that just happen to have a lot of applicants with degrees. I have heard that schools in california do, like touro, but what other schools are there (both in cali and other states)?

    Would really appreciate your help! :D

    I remember reading about Albany, LECOM, Loma Linda, UCSD, UCSF, Nevada, MCPHS that they have high percentage of people holding a bachelor degree or higher. I hope I remember correctly

    Ohio State-100% have at least a bachelor's degree. It's required for admissions.

    UCSF is almost 98% Bachelors holders traditionally....at least based on the last few years. FYI, After speaking to the admissions committee, they say it is more of a reflection of the applicant pool than their selection process! That might makes sense, since most people without a Bachelor's degree are probably scared away from applying.

    USC admission requires Bachelor degree although they don't mention it in their website.

    I do not think Albany has a large number of bacholers holders to be honest. Like some said earlier Ohio State probably has the highest percentage.

    If you have 29/30 of your credits at 4.0 and 1/29 at 3.7 then you have a 3.99 GPA. So you could probably have as many as 6 semester credits of A- (assuming they round up).

    Two years in a row the visiting person from USC's school of pharmacy to the CSUSB grad fair said if you don't have a Bachelor's you may as well not even bother.

    I believe the only people that do not have a Bachelor's in our classes are the USC TAPers.

  14. I'm pretty sure that all the schools now have a majority of applicants/admits with BAs or BS's now.
