Admissions Overview

PharmCAS candidates undergo a holistic review.

- Staff Review: academic review, prerequisites completion, application materials
- 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

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.

  • Please refrain from printing documents (if you do, please shred them).
  • If you know a candidate, notify us and we will reassign them.
  • Do not discuss candidates with anyone besides admissions staff and other eReviewers.
  • Comments are required.
  • You’ll receive an email when assigned a candidate. Assignments are due within 1 week. If you cannot complete an eReview in a timely manner, notify us and we will reassign them.

Interviews

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.
