Is there a minimum number of C's that I can make in the science requirements and still be competitive when applying to pharmacy school?

I am going to be a junior in college in the school year 2016-2017, and I want to be realistic of what opportunities I definitely can pursue. I am at a quality academic college and I have a couple of C's. I am very interested in this field and I plan on volunteering with a pharmacist in a few months. I just want to know will C's make me less competitive than others even though I have above a 3.0 in the pre-pharmacy requirements and do pharmacy schools evaluate where I took my courses at. #pharmacy #pharmacists #admissions

David’s Answer

Pharmacy school is very competitive and demanding. Pre-requisite classes are important to achieve the best possible grade for admission into a pharmacy school. No it is possible to obtain admissions into a pharmacy school with C grades. I would check with individual schools for their minimum requirements for acceptance.

As stated in the previous response, please check the GPA requirements of each individual pharmacy school that you are interested in applying to. Having one C won't prevent you from getting admitted to a pharmacy school. But if someone has Cs in multiple science courses, I would strongly recommend reevaluating if pharmacy school is the right option because pharmacy programs are heavily focused on clinical science and require a lot of memorization and understanding of baseline physiology, anatomy, and chemistry.
