What Are My Odds Of Getting Into Pharmacy School?

This Question Is From: Online Pharmacy Technician Schools and has 1 Answer

Ok, guys! I applied to UMKC School of Pharmacy for fall 2010. They are changing their program, which is one of the reasons why I am applying. Plus, my mom and sister lives in the area and I definitely want to be close to my family during this time in my life. I did 6 years in the air force as a pharmacy technician and currently in the AF reserves. I am a CPhT-been certified since 2006. I have an extensive background as a pharmacy technician and was in charge of controlled substances, high cost medication, infection control monitor, crash carts, etc. I was inducted in Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society in 2007. I had a 3.8 GPA, but I failed a pre calculus class at another university due to personal reasons. I explained that in a typed letter to UMKC. I am shooting for a 4.0 this semester, which should boost my grade back up to a 3.6. I have not taken the PCAT yet-will taking in January. I also have a few extracurricular activities. I am so afraid that the failed class will hurt my chances of getting in, even though it is not a prerequisite. What do you think my chances are of getting in? I am trying to shoot for above an 80 on my PCAT and will be taking the Kaplan online course this Christmas break. Help???

    with an 80 on the PCAT and all your other experiences i would say you have a very good chance. you will need letters of recommendation most likely so thats something else to think about!!! Good Luck!
