I am not sure of the context of your question. Have you already completed your pre-reqs and will be starting at pharmacy school in the fall or are you still in the process of taking pre-reqs? Because it is my understanding that the pre-reqs are there to give you the basic foundation of knowledge that will be required in pharmacy school. From what pharm students have told me, the pre-reqs themselves are enough.

I feel like A&P and really understanding principles behind gen chem will definitely be useful. Definitely NOT physics, I'm purging that useful info from my brain.

What is offered at your school?

My medicinal chemistry elective was a great precursor to my pharmaceutical chemistry classes.
Biochem is ok
Our 1st year is pretty biochem and anatomy/physiology intensive, so that helps. Neurochemistry comes in handy as well if you find a course that delves into it. Neurotransmitters are affected by many different classes of drugs.
Those would be my initial suggestions.
Genetics would come in handy if your school of choice is into pharmacogenomics.
