Acceptance letters are mailed to applicants in April. We admit a class of 160 students each year.
Because we receive so many applications, we sometimes place applicants on a wait list. Depending on how many applicants ultimately accept our admissions offer, some applicants on the wait list will also be offered admissions. The exact number of students varies from year to year.
If you do not receive an acceptance offer, we strongly encourage you to re-apply. Every year, qualified students are denied because there simply aren’t enough available spaces. Take advantage of the coming year to make your application more competitive. This can be done through taking further coursework, studying for the PCAT, taking a PCAT preparation course, joining a professional organization as a student member, holding an office of a student organization, or volunteering or working in a pharmacy.
