    You might be surprised how many would use this forum as a platform for their own purposes...

    I would say retake PCAT and aim to score in the 90s to compensate for the relatively low GPA. It's doable

    I've been looking online at MMI stuff and basically all the advice and practice questions and stuff like that is for medical school MMI questions. Is the pharmacy MMI going to be pretty much the same as a medical school MMI except with more drug related situations?

    The MMIs are very similar for med and pharm school. I don't even remember getting any drug-related questions. All questions were non-pharm related; I would say get some practice on how to approach ethical dilemmas, major healthcare issues that have been on the news lately...etc.

    Hi everyone, would love some feedback on my scores.

    cGPA is ~3.2
    Bio: 94
    CR: 76
    Quant: 99
    Chem: 92
    Comp: 96

    Also, can anyone tell me if admissions looks at overall GPA or do they weigh the required courses more heavily?

    Thank you!!!

    most probably not. they automatically remove anyone below any of the cutoffs before selection for interviews. if you have a 2.5 in writing, you must rewrite the PCAT

    I think they look at the overall GPA. I got in with a low 60 in one of the organic chem courses. Your PCAT scores look amazing. As for your GPA, it's not on the competitive end but I think you still got a pretty solid chance of getting in if you do well on your MMI. Practice. Practice. Practice.

    Is it true that the last few digits of the applicant ID number shows what number applicant you are? I thought I read that somewhere before.

    If you google MMI there's tons of videos and practice questions out there that people have made to help you out. That guy won't be able to tell you specifics about the previous MMI for confidentiality reasons but you can do your own research and try to find someone that will help you practice and do mock MMI with you. That's honestly the best thing you can do is just practice and be confident

    Yes I'm aware of that but this person was literally spamming this entire thread about offering MMI help and even the mods came after him lol but he went ghost after that so... Will he be sending us the material or not is my question?
