Step 2 - Admissions Committee Review
The Admissions Committee is composed of a cross section of faculty members and advanced
students who review each application to determine which applicants will be invited
to the Amarillo or Abilene campus for an interview. To select those to interview,
we compute each applicant’s probability of successfully completing the curriculum
(4 years of pharmacy studies with a composite GPA above 75% and no course failures),
by a regression formula that includes your Pre-Pharmacy GPA (as computed on your application),
and the Composite, Biology, Chemistry and Reading scores on your PCAT. Through statistical
analysis of our previous students’ success in the curriculum, we have found that these
elements are highly predictive of an applicant’s success or failure in the program.
Once the probabilities are computed, we then invite those with the highest probability
of being academically successful for an interview.
