    Mrs. Alexander (aka Mrs. A) teaches pharm and is wonderful!!! For lecture all of the teachers take turns giving lectures on different subjects so you really don't have a choice. Don't worry though they are all great!! If you have a choice for clincals/skills lab try to get Mrs. A, K Bassel or Erickson. Usually the teachers are TBA when the schedule comes out though.

    Taking pharm before you start is a great idea. It's very time consuming and alot of memorization. Students who are taking it with the first semester seem alot more overwhelmed than those who aren't.

    I also had Strong for micro, but in lecture though. I've heard he can be very strict in lab and lots of quizzes! He's a good teacher you'll learn alot from him!

    Feel free to email me if you would like more specific details to anything!! I'd be happy to try and answer any questions that you have.

    BTW - if you have all your prereqs it is very likely you will make it in this coming semester. The cut off point for entrance last semester was 18.6 points. Hope this helps.

    Hi, Susie!

    If you needed 100 and you made a 116, then you should be in the running!

    My first choice school requires a 50th %-ile or better on each subtest, rather than a particular composite score. I'm pretty good at taking tests, and I got 99th %-ile in verbal (I'm an English teacher--already have a BA), 72nd %-ile in math (not my favorite subject), and 95th %-ile in Science. My composite score was a 146.

    Yet, this really is just one element in what the admissions dept at my school looks at . . . there's still your transcripts to consider, references, and a personal interview. I felt my interview went lousy, and now I'm sweating over whether I'll be accepted or not. I should hear any day.

    I wish you luck and hope you get an acceptance letter soon!
