    Your first step is to use the search function and read the stickied posts at the top of the page.

    Well, you could apply for pharmacy school again the next year. Or if you even sorta have other majors/concentrations in mind, you can go to school, take your prereq classes, and finally decide what's right and interesting for you.

    My advice, MAKE GOOD GRADES, be focused, get advised by a pre-pharmacy advisor... 2 years of pre-requisites flies by, especially when your studying hard like you should be, and have a good advisor to finish the pre-reqs in EXACTLY 2 years. Then you can apply to an even better school possibly (if you want), somwhere else that might be more interesting to you. Good luck.

    For starters, the 0+6 route is not the only route into pharmacy school. You have college to start a fresh, good GPA and apply to the 2+4s and higher.

    Feel free to ask questions if you have more specific ones in mind.

    Hey there. Sorry you didn't get in. I'm looking to apply to some 0-6 schools next year. They are extremely competative to get into so don't be down. What were your stats, if you don't mind me asking?

    Don't worry it's not the end of the world! Most pharmacy students go through the 2+4 route (or there are some 2+3 programs...and you can end up finishing before your 0-6 peers). Just go to a university or community college and make good grades on you prereqs and PCAT, if needed, and go from there.
