Letters of Recommendation for Pharmacy School

Pharmacy schools vary in their requirements for letters of recommendation. Most pharmacy schools will require a minimum of two to three letters of recommendation; often sending more (if the school will allow) can strengthen your application. Purdue University requires a minimum of two letters of recommendation. You should check with other pharmacy schools regarding their guidelines on letters of recommendation.

For most pharmacy schools, you will be required to have your recommenders submit their recommendations directly through the PHARMCAS application system.  Please check with the individual schools however for instructions on how they would like recommendations to be submitted and refer to the PHARMCAS instructions.
