Getting into a good grad school/pharmacy school

<p>I have a question about getting into grad school/pharmacy school. Everyone should know that Engineering is a rigorous curriculum but do Grad Schools/Pharmacy Schools consider this and make exceptions? Would, lets say a Chemical Engineering, with a 3.4-3.5 GPA have a better or same chance as say a Biology or History major with a 3.9-4.0 GPA in getting into Pharmacy School/Grad School</p>

<p>Yes, especially in the case of grad school. It's going to be SUBSTANTIALLY harder to get into grad school for engineering with a history degree instead of an engineering or science degree. Also, I would not lump biology and history into the same category of major, because they're not even close.</p>

<p>Pharmacy schools are going to primarily interested in your math/science gpa and grades in other prerequisite courses they require, your PCAT score, and LOR's and pharmacy experience. Most have specific requirements like no pre-req grades below a C, all pre-req courses taken within the last 5 years, etc. Beyond that, it's not that big a deal if you got C's in courses they consider unrelated to pharmacy and it's not really important what your undergrad major was. In other words, they're not likely to be very interested in your overall gpa in either history or engineering!</p>

<p>If you're a high schooler or in the first or second year of college, you might want to reconsider your path to a pharmacy school, assuming you're talking about being a pharmacist. I'd think ChemE is as hard, or even harder the PharmD program. A PhD in pharmaceutical sciences sounds more reasonable for a ChemE, though.</p>

<p>A PhD in pharmaceutical sciences is more appropriate for a reasearch, teaching, or big pharma career, not one as a RPh...</p>
