    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.. ;)

    Thank you guys I will retake the exam in october.I hear these days you have to apply early.I plan to put my application in now.Would that hurt me since the schools would not get my PCAT till December Dose that mean I will have my application thrown out before my second pcat

    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.
