Learn About the Application Services

Complete Your Secondary Applications 

Some health professions schools require secondary applications to be completed in addition to the primary application through TMDSAS, PharmCAS, and other application services.

Letters of Evaluation 

You can have a maximum of four (4) references on your PharmCAS application. Do NOT send more than four references to PharmCAS. Send any additional references directly to your designated pharmacy schools. Pharmacy schools may not consider extra references. Check your school’s entry on the PharmCAS Directory to see what types of evaluations are required, recommended, and not accepted by each institution. A few schools prefer that applicants send references directly to the institution. This information will be included on their directory page.

Write Your Personal Statement

The personal statement is a critical component of your application to Pharmacy school, as the personal statement can either significantly help or harm your chances for success, it is important to take it seriously. The statement must be personal. This is your chance to let the Admissions Committee hear from you and understand who you are. Take advantage of the opportunity to express your commitments, motivations, and values

Prepare for Your Interview

It is important to professionally and properly represent yourself to an admissions committee, from what to wear to anticipating what questions might be asked.
