ACPHS isn't all that difficult to get intoMar 16 2014Pharmacy
ACPHS isn't all that difficult to get into. If you get ~1600 on the SAT and are a B student who is involved in extracurricular activities, you'll probably get in, but I doubt you'll get a scholarship. They have a very small endowment that is somewhere around 6K per student per year, which is extremely low. Don't get your heart set on ACPHS before you see your financial aid package if you can't afford it without lots of aid. If you want one of the more substantial scholarships (10K or 12K each yr), you'll need at least an 1800 on the SAT and a 93+ average. Show interest in the school! It's okay to email/call admissions. This is a small school, so there's a good chance they'll remember you if you really show interest.

It was easy to get inNov 30 2011Pharmacy
It was easy to get in. All they care about is your overall high school average and your SAT scores.
Getting into the 3rd year (the beginning of the profesiional years) is much harder. You pretty much have to have a bachelor's from another school with an awesome GPA. Most people start at the first year.
