    Hello everyone!

    I am mapping out how I should take my prerequisite classes for pharmacy school. I have a Bachelors and did decently as an undergrad, GPA was decent. I worked for a few years after undergrad (or a long time you can put it, >5 years) and now I want to return to get the PharmD degree at a pharmacy school.

    My question is where did you all take your prerequisite classes for pharmacy school applications? Did you take it at a local community college?

    And did any of you complete a post baccalaureate program? Thanks!

    Hey!

    I took all my pre-reqs at my 4 year university except my public speaking and statistics requirements, which I did at a CC. I would think that you’d be much more competitive if you took your science courses at a 4 year university but people have gotten into schools taking all their prerequisites at a CC also, so there’s that.

    Hi Konp,

    I highly recommend taking all your major science courses (all your chemistry courses, and the more complex bio courses,) at a 4 year university, as mentioned above. As for the electives, it won't matter where you take them.

    I personally took half of my electives and some biology at a community college, but made sure to complete all my CHEMISTRY courses at a 4 year uni. They didn't ask me about it in the interview, everything went great!

    I will mention though, it will differ from pharmacy school to pharmacy school, so make sure to get in contact with the pharmacy advisor at the main school you're looking to apply to and ask them about it!

    Good luck :)
