    I just wonder if anyone in here gets a ton of emails from pharmacy schools all over the country offering me like quick admission decision, scholarships, or instate tuition. After taking the PCAT in September, I have been bombarded by the emails from the schools that I've not applied to. Any idea?

    That's happening to me too! It's probably because there aren't as many students applying to pharmacy school as previous years, so they're struggling to fill the seats. I read that somewhere here.

    Haha, ironically, my top choice school hasn't sent me any email like that.

    There's many of them but I remember I've got some from Creighton, Utah, Chicago, and Jefferson.

    Fun fact! Pharmacy schools can purchase your contact info from Pearson after you take the PCAT. They buy contact info for students in bulk and send out marketing emails. They can even narrow it to students with a score greater than X, students in Y zip codes, and so on.
