    Here's one issue, politically driven acceptance letters. That's probably something you won't find on the AACP site.

    Legacy programs, people who know people, parents that are medical professionals who have influence at schools, 0-6 programs that put students in pharm. schools that really shouldn't be attending, need I say more?

    Some issues you might want to take a look at are Mifipristone (the morning after pill), pharmacists prescribing, rising prescription costs, a centralized patient medical database, or look into recent advances in drugs such as sunitib used to increase kidney cancer remission.
