  1. Bonjour à tous! Je vous explique un peu ma situation. Je veux vraiment devenir pharmacienne. Je n'avais pas les notes en sortant du cégep, j'ai donc fait une mineure en biologie (qui s'est plus ou moins bien déroulé) et je suis maintenant à ma deuxième année du bac en psycho (qui va super bien, j'ai 4.1 sur 4,33). J'ai été refusée pour le doctorat en pharmacie pour l'automne 2020 et j'ai donc demandé ma CRU: 30,269. Maintenant, je tente de voir des programmes pour après mon bac afin de monter ma CRU. J'ai pensé au bac en sciences biopharmaceutiques. Je sais que c'est un gros programme mais je pense que ça pourrait m'intéresser si pharmacie ne fonctionne pas. Je me demande si certains d'entre vous ont des conseils pour rentrer en pharmacie, ou si certains sont dans le BSBP, quelles sont vos opinions, la difficulté/possibilité d'avoir des bonnes notes, votre GPA et votre CRU si vous l'avez, et si vous avez réussi à entrer en pharmacie. Aussi, avec une CRU de 30,269 , croyez-vous que je peux rentrer au BSBP? C'est inscrit que la cote R est de 28 pour rentrer alors je pense que oui mais je voudrait votre avis. N'hésitez pas à ajouter toutes autres infos que vous trouvez pertinente! Merci de prendre le temps de répondre, j'ai besoin de conseils!
  2. Creating this thread for all pharmacy applicants this year!! Hows everyone's stats looking?
  3. Allo guys, Jai accepte une offre au debut de lete en ergo the a UDEM mais mtn ke lannee scolaire commence, jai kelkes doutes par rapport a mon choix ! Mon but ultime est detre accepte en pharma mais jaimerai savoir si kkun ici a fini sa premiere anne dergo et serait pret a repondre a certaines dmes questions !
  4. Hello Everyone! I am a pharmacist and have completed a Canadian hospital pharmacy residency. This was a year long paid position involving a variety of 4 week clinical rotations (ie. ICU, cardiology, psychiatry etc) as well as a research project. I am debating how best to enter this type of experience. It will end up in the employment section of course. I am just curious what people think about the following strategies: 1. One 2500+ hour entry covering the residency year 2. Divided into multiple sections in order to give better description of each (ie. ICU rotation 250 hours, etc) My concern with 1 is that it would be pretty tough to discuss the whole year in 350 characters. And of course option 2 might look odd as would require 8ish smaller entries. Let me know what you think! All input is greatly appreciated! Thank you very much
  5. Hi Everyone, I hope that everyone's staying well during these unprecedented times! Since I originally posted in the University Of Alberta 2020 Pharmacy Applicants - Class Of 2024 page, I've been getting an overwhelming amount of students reaching out to me who feel extremely overwhelmed by the application process, and how to get into pharmacy school. I completely understand how daunting it can be - especially with components of the application such as the interview and the letter of intent, which you may have not had experience with before. Common questions that have come up include things like how important is work/volunteer experience as part of my application, and how do I get a job/volunteer experience in the field? What percentage of my application is weighted on grades, and what percentage is weighted on my letter of intent and interview? How important are my written (LOI) and verbal communication skills (interview), and how do I improve them? As I mentioned in my original post, over the past few years, I've had a string of success in helping several different individuals in getting into the program at the UofA, including several of my own staff that I hired as pharmacy assistants before they were admitted. Looking back, I really wish I had access to these resources, and if I did, I would've changed my application approach entirely knowing what I do now, and would've started preparing for my application much, much earlier than I did. And so, because I've had so many reach out to me directly, I've really come to recognize just how scarce the information and resources are out there. I wanted to reach out and create a separate post to let you know that if you're looking for some advice from an independent pharmacy operator and recent graduate, shoot me an email (choi.chung913@gmail.com) and I'd love to connect with you to see how I can help with your questions! Best of luck for those applying this upcoming year, and for those who've already gotten an acceptance letter, congratulations!
  6. Hello Prospective Pharmacy Student! Imagine putting in every ounce of energy you have into your pharmacy school application only to wake up to an email containing a rejection letter - it can be incredibly discouraging. What's more is that there is such limited information available to guide you through your application process, and to advise you what's most important in your application. Is it your prerequisite GPA? Your cumulative GPA? Is it your work experience? Your interview or letter of intent? I can tell you by far the biggest mistake that applicants make is focusing all of their efforts into their grades and academic standing. About Me I'm a 2017 graduate from the University of Alberta and the owner/manager of an innovative, highly-clinical based independent pharmacy practice in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 2020, I was recognized with a prestigious APEX award from the Alberta College of Pharmacy and Alberta Pharmacists Association. Over the past few years, I've held a 100% success rate in coaching several different applicants towards their admission into the Faculty of Pharmacy program at the UofA using my extensive combined experience as a pharmacy graduate, pharmacy owner, and clinical pharmacist. My Approach A successful applicant is backed by a strong, well-articulated letter of intent, and interview, which is where most applicants fail to stand out. I help coach students 6 to 8 months before their target application deadline by giving them proven strategies to ensure their applications are well-rounded enough to give them the competitive advantage they need to stand out from the hundreds to thousands of other applicants applying each year. Outside of this, I also help coach students towards finding the pharmacy volunteer / work experience they need to truly enhance their application, which I understand can be an incredibly daunting process. Services and Availability Given my busy pharmacy practice and schedule, I only have the ability to offer a limited number of students the opportunity to work with me at this time, as some spots have already been reserved for those who had reached out to me since my original post in the Pharmacy Discussions forum. And so, if you're serious about being competitive with your application this upcoming year or in the upcoming future, and you're interested in working with me, shoot me an email (choi.chung913@gmail.com) and I'd be happy to meet with you virtually or in-person for an initial consultation to learn more about your unique needs, discuss how I'm able to help, what my competitive rates look like, and to see if there's a possibility we can work together. Looking forward to helping you reach your goal of getting into the pharmacy program!
  7. Bonjour ! Je rentre en pharmacie à ULaval en automne 2020, et j'aimerais savoir avec quelle banque je devrais faire affaire pour avoir une bonne marge de crédit étudiante ? Quels sont les critères pour choisir la meilleure option ? Je n'ai aucune connaissance dans le domaine ! Merci beaucoup
  8. Hi everyone, I am currently a hospital pharmacist and have completed a clinical pharmacy residency. This was a year long program that included about 8 different clinical rotations (ie. emerg, ICU, psychiatry etc) usually x 4 weeks each. My question is, what would be the best way to enter this? I could do it as a single entry (2500+ hours) or break it down into 8ish different entries (ie. emerg rotation x 250hr etc). Any advice or input would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
  9. Bonjour, j'ai fini le cégep récemment et j'ai été accepté en Nutrition à McGill et en kinésiologie à Udem. J'attends encore la réponse pour kinésiologie à McGill. Je voudrais savoir si kinésiologie est un bon programme pour ensuite aller en pharmacie (après 1 ans environ). J'ai parlé à un pharmacien et c'est ce qu'il a fait. Aussi, est-ce que le programme de kinésiologie est plus facile et permet de bien augmenter la cote r à McGill ou à Udem?
  10. Hello! Est-ce que quelqu’un a déjà appliqué en médecine, pharmacie, physiothérapie, optométrie ou nutrition à l’UdeM après avoir obtenu un bac en droit de l’UdeM? Quelle était votre cote au BAC? Quelle était votre CRU? J’essaie d’avoir une idée de ce que pourrait être la CRU à l’udem avec 3.7/4.3 dans un bac en droit. Merci!
  11. Hey everyone here is a thread for this year's Pharmacy applicants at the UofS (a tad late, but I had some questions). Just wondering if because of the additional year of pre reqs added on starting this year for the PharmD, if we think our individual chances of getting in will be better? I'm not sure how many first years applied in previous years, but would the lack of first years applying this year mean there is less competition? I am OOP and just wondering what your thoughts were on this. Thanks and goodluck!
  12. i can't seem to stop stressing! Could someone please tell me what my chances are for the UofA PharmD program? I am an in-province applicant! Prereq GPA: 3.60 2nd year GPA: 3.73 (10 classes total) 3rd year GPA: likely 3.75 (9 classes total) Thank you!!!
  13. Hiii, I can't find any stats on U of A website regarding previous year admission statistics for pharm so I was looking for some insight into my chances. I have my BSc. Last two years GPA- 3.8 Highest year GPA- 3.81 Prereq GPA- 3.4 (yeet) but still have two courses to take next semester which will count towards this GPA. Experience: Shadowed a hospital pharmacist for a month and a half (once a week) in 2016 as well as a retail pharmacist. Lots of health care volunteering and shadowing. Thanks so much in advance!
  14. Hello! I saw a lot of discussions about previous years for the new applicants and couldn’t find one for the upcoming cycle so thought I would make one to try and keep updated! I’m a new applicant myself and have a couple questions if anyone would know any answers to I would be really greatful! Mostly I’m looking for recommendations on how to succeed in the application, whether that be in the interview, the letter of intent or just preparing in general! If anyone has any thoughts let me know! Otherwise goodluck to everyone who is applying
  15. Hi everyone, Thought it may be helpful to start a thread for prospective UBC PharmD students applying to start the program in September 2019. The application deadline is January 15, 2019. More info can be found on: https://pharmsci.ubc.ca/programs/entry-practice-pharmd-degree If you have any questions/comments/discussion, please post below!
  16. I completed by BSc in bio at ubc last year. I applied to ubc med school (just ubc...yeah that was stupid I know) and didn't get in. As a back-up I also applied to ubc pharmacy which I am currently waiting to see if I got in. I'm torn between whether I should do a year of pharmacy and boost my gpa a bit, or continue to build my extracurriculars. I'm aware my activities are seriously lacking and my grades aren't good either, but my NAQ is the reason I'm contemplating just staying out of school and focusing on my jobs and volunteering. Any advice would be appreciated!
  17. Salut, je viens d'être accepter en nutrition à UdeM. Cependant mon goal ultime serait d'aller en médecine, mais je n'ai pas les notes nécéssaires en ce moment. Est-ce possible d'utiliser ce programme de nutrition comme pont, pour augmenter ses notes et ainsi avoir une meilleur chance d'être accepté en médecine après ?
  18. Hello! I figured a new thread should be started for the 2018 applicants/class of 2022s. Since this is about a month late, I'm sure you all know that the LOI and Pharmacist Consultation Form has been posted for this cycle, but here's the link anyways: https://www.cms.ualberta.ca/pharm/programs/undergraduate-bsc-in-pharmacy/prospective-student/admission-requirements. Best of luck to all, and I (and I'm sure other pharm students will bounce into this thread) am always willing to answer whatever questions I can!
  19. Hey everyone, I just wanted to start a thread for when interview invites start rolling out around end of march everyone can stay updated! If you get an email/call post below and keep us updated. Or if anyone has questions good luck everyone!
  20. Hello everyone, Please allow me to introduce myself. I am an Alberta university student of African descent, and I am obviously as seen with my post interested in applying to pharmacy. I am currently completing my third year of studies in Biological Sciences and I am just wondering out of curiosity what the racial demographics of the U of A pharmacy school are? For instance, have the incoming classes been predominantly white, are there black students, are there Asian students, etc.? Also, I am wondering if there is a relatively even split of male-female students? I don't want to be the sole or one of the few minority students during the time I spend at U of A pharmacy school if I do eventually get accepted. Thank you all who answer for your time. Regards, An inquiring soul
  21. ASP Cares exists for one reason – to simplify the lives of our patients. With the big heart and strong work ethic of a small-town community pharmacy and the resources of a large retail pharmacy, ASP Cares brings the best of both worlds – a concept you won’t find with any other specialty pharmacy. Ask for highest grade and comprehensive medications, drugs & prescription from ASP Cares, a nationwide specialty pharmacy with centers in Texas, Florida, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. We are on our toes round the clock.
  22. Hello everyone! I am a 2nd year undergraduate student in Canada majoring in Biology. I’m currently on a co-op term (I just completed my first term of 2nd year) and taking a course in quantum. I have a lot of volunteering experience, and I’m currently volunteering at 2 hospitals. I have yet to do research or shadow a pharmacist/doctor. My cGPA is around 3.0 (73.5%, ) and I’m considering pharmacy school in the U.S! Does anyone know the pharmacy schools in the U.S that accept Canadian applicants? Additionally, how competitive is the entrance into these schools (GPA-wise)? I’ve heard from some people that pharmacy in the U.S might not be the best option (in terms of getting a job). I was wondering how the process would be if I graduated from a PHARM school in the U.S and wanted to return to Canada to work? I appreciate all the help, it truly means a lot to me! Thank you.
  23. I completed my pharmacy degree abroad (Egypt). My parents decided to leave Canada and move back to Egypt, and guess what? Had to leave with them. However, i decided to move back to Canada after completing pharmacy. Im currently a licensed Pharmacist in Ontario. I hold a bachelors degree and wish to apply to medical school. My average in pharmacy was around 86%. I still need to take my MCATs. I am also thinking about completing my PharmD, in hopes to strengthen my application. Im not sure where to start, and do i even have a chance? Will my international undergrad hold be back a little bit ? I am looking for an advice or any feedback Thanks for taking the time to read through this :)
  24. Hello Everyone! Thought it would be ideal to start an official thread for prospective UBC PharmD students!

Plenty of mostly-friendly UBC PharmD students (myself) and prospective PharmD students on this forum Cheers, CDuke93
