    Hi guys, I am in Canada

    here we can get the bachelors of pharmacy before PharmD.

    I was just wonderin if having the bachelors of pharmacy will increase my chances of getting into medical school.
    in other words, is that important to them when evaluating my application ;or it's no different than having any other bachelors?

    (I am sayin that since the pharmacy and medicine have alot in common)

    Thanks for replies.[​IMG]

    Are you asking about Canadian schools or US schools? I know that UBC med takes so many students from pharmacy that pharmacy is considered the backdoor to medschool. I doubt it'd make a difference in the States though.

    Hey
    I'm at McGill, and they have an unwritten agreement between professional faculties stating that you can't transfer from OT or PT or Dentistry into Med, because everyone was doing it and those faculties were not graduating more than 10 students at the end. I don't know how it works elsewhere, but you should definitely talk to a med adviser to get the insider's scoop.
    Also, what you are doing is insanely selfish, because you are taking up a spot for someone who really wants to be there. Just do a BSc like everyone else. Plus UBC has COOP, so you will have research experience, which in the US is highly regarded.

    i Know what you are sayin BUT i was thinkin that in case i dont get into med school, i still have something that i love (pharmacy) and something that has a future. HOwever, if i do another bachelors like chemistry or biology and if i dont get into med, i CANT do anything with it at the end
