Looking for some help with streamlining schools to apply

Sorry, if this sounds clueless... I am somewhat new to the pharmacy schools/programs but trying to help DC with his school selection. DC is trying to apply RD to the following schools - U of Maryland Eastern Shore, UMD-Baltimore, Pitt, Tenn, WVa, Howard, Lake Erie, Appalachian, Albany, St John Fisher, UNC-CH, Ohio, Buffalo, Mercer, Cinci, VCU, Campbell (NC), Wisconsin, Utah, Kentucky, and FL.

Obviously, there are too many on the list so DC is trying to cut down to a manageable number of schools. DC's weak on GPA (cGPA of only 3.0, prerequisite GPA of 3.3-3,4 depending on school) but scored high on PCAT (94 (chem/bio), 97 (reading), 99 (math) and 99 (composite)). So, schools that put more emphasis on PCAT (over GPA) would be beneficial to him. Any thoughts you have is greatly appreciated. If there are schools DC has no shot (due to his GPA) that would be nice to know as well. Sorry about the long post. TIA.
