    hello all,
    I am new to this forum. I have just decided to go into pharmacy.

    I was wondering if you guys know of schools that don't average grades when a course was repeated. I had to retake one of my classes. Thank you.

    If you apply through PharmCas both the original grade and new grade are used, so you can't pick an choose whether or not it is averaged. I guess it is possible for non-PharmCas schools to take only your new grade, but I don't know of any.

    I was kind of worried about that myself. I got an F like 12 years ago in my COM 101 (Writing) class. I forgot to withdraw when I dropped out of college. Now that I am back I retook it and got an A.

    Is this going to hurt me when I apply? I have all A's in my science and other classes. I'm thinking I should be OK. I would like to have it removed from my transcript. I just dont know how:)

    the University of Utah takes the most recent grade only and doesn't average but the problem with the UofU is that if you aren't a resident of Utah your chances of getting in are very very slim!

    Thank you for the links. Unfortunately forgiven classes show up on your transcript and I beleive PharmCAS does average them in. I have heard of people having their grade completely removed. I just dont know how they did it.
