    From the schools I have looked at they want about a B+ GPA. Every once in a while someone with a lower GPA will get in, mostly b/c they have connections.

    if you have some sort of amazing character or personal experiences they take the into consideration too, but with a mark that low you'd better have founded your own multi-million dollar charity organization and save African orphans or it "don't look good" my friend.

    yes, but first you must prove yourself in junior college. Do well in junior college and then apply. You will get in if you can keep up a good GPA 3.5 or higher, do volunteer work, and get a part time job in a hospital. Get your assoc degree and apply. It worked for me and I did horrible in high school.
    I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

    You could try putting another race down on your application and hope affirmative action kicks in.

    you can but not right out of college. Look at 2 or 3 scchool that offer pharmacy around you and then take comparable classes, like if the pharmacy requires freshman to tkae chemistry 101 then take that class or it's equal at the community college, at a community college or at the university that offers pharmacy. Get a 3.5 or better for the first 2 years of college and you'll have a chance of gettin in.

    Yes you can. I know a doctor who got into medical school with a 2.5. It's all about perseverence. TRY IT. The schools need applicants and new students so they'll probably offer some advice for the future if they think your application is no good now.

    Realistically man, your chances are slim if you try, and you might not get in... but trying and failing is a lot more respectable than not doing anything; in which case your chances are zip.

    Think about the looks on everyone's faces if you did get in. Use that for motivation.

    If that's a high school GPA, then no. You need quite a bit higher then that.. around a 3.8. At my school, Rutgers University, which is rated the number two pharmacy program in the U.S, if you get below a 2.8 you are automatically kicked out, but i don't know anything about pharmacy so i can't really help.

    What some people do at Purdue University if they want to get into the Engineering or Pre-Vet fields will apply at the school with a more acceptable (ie easy) major and then transfer once they are in. Now I know its different with post grad schools, but its worth a shot.
