    Moving to pre-pharmacy as this is a school admissions question.

    It is very important to discuss your opportunities with the schools you desire to attend.

    Have you contacted and discussed your application with the schools you applied to? It is important to ask them what your application was lacking - then spend this next year focusing on those changes.

    I would start NOW to open a line of communication (talk directly with the programs you are interested in) such that when they review applications next year, they can recognize your name.

    There are many other threads about "how to improve my chances" - I suggest you do a search for those. Start first with what I wrote above - then expand your efforts.

    Just a suggestion..but Western has a Master of Health Science program that you can apply to. They enroll in August, I think you can still catch the deadline. Perhaps their MSHS program can help you get into their pharmacy program. You can PM me for more info if you're interested. Hope that helps!
