[UPDATED] PharmD School Wish List

Whew~ I just spent $70+ buying PCAT books~ Here goes nothing!
For my convenience I'm going to list the schools that I'm planning on apply too. ALSO. Apparently I'm supposed to take a Speech class?! WTF. Didn't know this till now. Hopefully I can pen it in in my schedule. I may have time next semester I think since I'm currently at 15 credit hours. But I plan to do Undergraduate research as well for my Senior capstone so we'll see where this goes. ><

[UPDATE: LIST UPDATED ACCORDING TO LOCATION. PCAT FINISHED. AND NOW I HAVE RESEARCH NEXT SEMESTER. HOW THE FUCK WILL I TAKE A SPEECH COURSE? LORD SAVE ME NOW.]

Ps. All schools are fully accredited unless otherwise noted.

Striked out schools mean I was denied interview (because I missed the deadline lol... :( ).

* THE FUCK. I was looking at the acceptance rates, and wtf is up with the incredibly low number of seats for out of states kids? I mean seriously, you have like ~130 seats total available and you have a max number of 15 seats for out of states kids?! THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT. 15 out of 130 for out of states kids?! (LOL. The Texas one is 4-10 out of 155.... -_____- WHY?! ) I really hope this is like that's the min number of out-of-state seats that must be filled. But fuck, the way it's worded, it seems like that's not the case.... WTF WORLD. Y U DO THIS TO ME?! WHAT IS THIS? STATEISM? I feel bad for out of country kids... -_____- If out of state kids only get 15 seats, then international kids must only get like what, less than one seat? Can they do that? Just let the kid's brain in and nothing else? -____- Fucking jerks...

EDIT: Ok. I found out that normally the school provides for transportation and housing for interviews out of state. I guess that's why they don't have too many. Make sense. >w> But still. Completely ruins my chances T____T

EDIT EDIT: OK. Now that I am almost done. All I can do it wait to hear back from them. It may be selfish, but pray for me please ;A;

EDIT EDIT EDIT: I heard that these rankings are all BS (I mean, look at the way they score it....) so I'm just going off how I feel about the school, the program, and the campus/ life there. I don't know. This is a tough decision.... :/
