    I'm at WVU where you apply to pharmacy school only after 3 semesters.. After next fall semester (last one before application) my GPA will mostly likely be 3.4... I am wondering what my chances are of being accepted to pharmacy school (not necessarily WVU)

    I have had some job shadowing experience at the local pharmacy and plan to help out there this summer as well as volunteer at something similar to summer school for elementary kids for 7 weeks..I would be fine with the letter of recomendation as well... I think my PCAT score will be competitive but im afraid anything below a 3.5 doesn't get looked at.

    Any insight?

    I don't know about elsewhere, but WVU's minimum is 3.1 for overall and pre-req GPA. If you apply for the fall of '08 application cycle, your upcoming fall grades will not be factored in with your GPA. Their deadline is Dec. 1 so basically they are looking at your freshman yr. and any summer classes!

    I think you have some negative thoughts. 3.4 is good. I got with 3.4 this years without even finishing all of my prerequisites. if you PCAt is good you will get in somewhere.
