a. Schools you are applying to Almost everywhere in California: UCSF, UCSD, USC, UOP, Western b. Overall GPA 3.2 c. Math/Science GPA 3.65 (I took Calc and Stats at my undergrad, got C- and C+ respectively. I wanted to retake both, but I may only be able to repeat calculus. But the science part is 4.0) d. GPA in last one or two school years 4.0 (Did not major in any kind of bio/science at my undergrad, nor did I try very hard in undergrad. But am doing the whole turning-my-life-around bit and have been taking all the science prereq's at a CC. ...Which is why my overall is so bad.) e. Complete PCAT scores (or just composite) Did not take; am applying only in CA anyways. f. Pharmacy experience obtained Volunteering, trying to get pharm tech work right now g. Date of application submission (PharmCAS/primary and secondary) Finishing up secondaries. Already submitted for UOP and USC though since they're tiered/rolling admissions.

Overall impression of personal statement quality I'm a good writer, but I don't typically write about myself. I hope I was able to walk that fine line of bragging about myself yet being humble at the same time.
