    The question is not "what is the easiest school to get into" but what schools accept students with "my" similar stats.

    The problem is that, the easier the school in terms of GPA and PCAT requirements, the more fierce the competition because everyone would apply there

    tellsarah's got it.

    A person might be a "shoo-in" at one school, but rejected without even getting an interview at another. You'll have to research to see what each school wants and find out which one seems to be the best fit for you.

    If you're looking for which school has students with the lowest GPAs and PCAT scores, search to find a thread with those stats - I've seen several. But keep in mind that while the average GPA at a certain school might be low, students there might have something else that makes up for it.

    typically, it would be the public school of the state in which you are a resident... unless you're in california, in which case, you're screwed =-)

    If you are asking this question, more than likely no school will be easy enough for you to gain admittance.:thumbdown:

    If people ask, "what's the hardest Pharm to get in to?" I bet most people will reply UCSF? :D

    You reverse the question and you'll get verbally abused, maybe a death threat or get banned.LOL

    just kidding:laugh:

    the easiest pharmacy school to get into is the pharmacy school that ultimately accepts you.:p

    I would probably say the current University you attend, if it has a Pharmacy school of course.

    UT = UT at Austin
    Texas Tech = TTUHSC
    Texas A&M = A&M at Kingsville
    etc.
