I'm sure you have a chance. I also have a low gpa like yours.... I think you should improve your pcats though. Some people in this forums have gotten into pharm schools with that gpa but very good pcats like >95s. And lots of EC's, LORs, typical stuff. Just be positive - thats what i'm trying to do. And get 4.0s next year =)

Without a doubt, retake the pcat. Your gpa isn't THAT low, but it's not strong and a 67 doesn't do anything to help it. With a 90 pcat and a 3.2 you have an excellent shot, with a 67 your chances go down considerably.

the GPA is not horrible, but not great. With that GPA I would say you need a much higher PCAT score to be very competitive, that is not to say that you cant get in with those stats. Good Luck!

I would go further and say retake the PCAT and get the volunteer hours higher (plus group affiliations and work). That'll make it easier for the deans to say yes; or harder for them to say no, whichever you like.. ;)

I'd like to know that too. I am editing my Pharmcas application (as I have not e-submitted yet) that I am taking the October PCAT, so hopefully that will indicate to the schools to expect that score. I don't know what you could do to alert them if you have already esubmitted though.
