The combination of perspectives and experiences from faculty, staff, alumni and student participants as eReviewers and interviewers greatly enriches the selection of our P1 class.
9/21/16 3pm-3:30pm: Pharmacy Practice departmental meeting and online training session for Dean’s Alumni Ambassadors. Details will be emailed. There is no need to RSVP – a recording will be shared if you cannot participate.
Interviews are scheduled on Friday’s. Please mark the
dates you are available on the Doodle Poll and add them to your calendar. You

PharmCAS candidates undergo a holistic review.
- Staff Review: academic review, prerequisites completion,
- eReview: online application review for non-academic qualifications
- Interview: in-person review for non-academic qualifications
Selection is based on scholastic achievement, aptitude, communication skills, leadership ability, personal qualifications, commitment to patient care, and motivation to pursue a career in pharmacy. Applicants are judged from GPA's, PCAT, grades, letters of recommendation, health care experience, research experience, community service, personal statement, and an interview.
See PharmD Admissions and Profile for characteristics of accepted P1 PharmD students.
NEW: We do not have a minimum PCAT requirement, however competitive candidates typically score around the 60 percentile (composite percentile score). We do not have a minimum score for each section.
eReviews are performed by faculty, staff, and alumni volunteers. One to two eReviews are assigned per week per eReviewer from September to April with each taking around 15-20 minutes. eReviews assess non-academic characteristics including personal qualifications, leadership skills, and experiences.
You will conduct a behavioral interview with prescribed questions to assess the candidate’s motivation/professional awareness, empathy/altruism, character/integrity, analytical thinking/opinion forming, intellectual curiosity/diversity of interests, and oral and non-verbal communication. Interview sessions are also recruitment events and a way to further develop and maintain the candidate’s interest in our school.
