I'm fairly sure that this is inaccurate. I thought that the majority of attendees start freshmen year, but that they do accept some "transfers". If I were you I'd call the campus to be certain b4 deciding not to apply.

Good luck:)

you usually have to take the PCAT in order for a school to accept you especially to their professional program cause they want to know if you know all you know.

i am sure st. john's requires pcats. there are a couple of schools that don't require you to take pcats to apply like purdue.

The colleges that you just listed will be ridiculously tough to get into...all of them (almost) has a 6 yr. program/direct entry for high school students. So if, for example, 250 out of 270 students made it to the professional phase, then you're talking about ~2500 applicants fighting for the 20 spots remaining. What I'm trying to say is that even though your GPA is very competitive, don't expect to get a quick response from the admissions. You will definitely be on the waiting list, in my opinion. But it'll take weeks, even months, to know if you will get into the program. Again, I'm not saying that you will not make it; you can actually. But be prepared to be extremely patient.
-If you ace the PCAT's, then I wouldn't worry at all. Give it a shot; you might do as well as you thought.

I don't want to end your hopes, but honestly, there are no easy schools to get into if you are a transfer student. Try applying somewhere else besides the schools in new york, new jersey, or pennsylvania since too many people are applying there. I strongly suggest that you take the PCAT's; if you do well, then apply to st. johns or albany. I do not know too much about the college in lake erie, so I won't say anything about that. I've heard from other people that MCP is the easiest, so try there.
Places to avoid (b/c it is too hard to get in)- sciences in philadelphia, buffalo, rutgers, pittsburgh, other public schools. Sorry, this is not much of a help...
-please take the pcat test!!!!!

sciences in philadelphia has stopped taking transfers
rutgers is hard to get into cause all the indians from that state fight to get in.

i believe pennsylvania is a good state to apply (sorry luckyPharmD.stu)...cause you have temple, university of philadelphia, duquenne, and a couple more since the first pharmacy school was founded in that state.

i heard schools in states like idaho and such are easy to get into

If you want to stay in the tri-state area, I heard there's a new pharmacy school opening this fall in Rochester, NY called St. John Fisher. I don't know how easy it is to get into but I guess it fits the criteria of "easier schools": private and new.

As far as I know St John's is not taking transfer anymore...St John Fisher is worthy to try though

I live here in Rochester, and Wegmans St. John Fisher School of Pharmacy only accepted 50 kids so good luck. I hear it is extremley hard to get into. Im hoping that when I apply they consider that I have been a tech at wegmans.
