    Does anyone know which pharmacy schools do not require Bachelor's degree? I am thinking about applying to few pharmacy schools that does not require Bachelor's degree this year. I understand that the chance is low but it doesn't hurt to try and I heard that will increase my chance of getting in next year as a reapplicant.

    Hi, just question on website you posted.
    I especially have question about notation in source you gave.
    a. no pre-pharmacy required for admission
    = does this mean 6a indicate 6 year pharmacy school program that do not require pre-pharmacy?
    b. pre-professional study required
    = what is pre-professional study? does this mean pre-requisite course for pharmacy school?
    c. 2 years pre-pharmacy required, accelerated
    = does this mean without being pre-pharmacy as undergraduate, impossible to even apply to those pharmacy school with such notation?
    Also, what is 2-3 program, 3-4 program, 4-2 program stand for?
    Do these mean undergraduate years-graduate years program respectively?
    Please reply me for detailed answer.

    One reason why your questions have not been answered is that they have already been answered at the following link:


    This is the Pre-Pharmacy FAQ. You should look through this link because all of your questions, AND MORE, are answered there!

    That table is kind of weird, I am a bit confused as well. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

    Seems like... a = no pre pharm requirement needed,
    b = prepharm prerequisites needed

    don't know about the 2 yr part in c, but I believe it's prepharm prerequisites required.

    I believe you are correct on the 2-3, 3-4 and 4-2 because I know USC has a 7 years program for pharmacy + undergraduate. 3 yr undergrad + 4 yr pharm = 3-4

    The best course of action for you would be call the school you are interested in and ask them how their programs work. A quick visit to their website would answer your questions as well. Also start with the link chemguy79 provided, all the information is there.
