The average Pharmacy College Admissions Test, or PCAT, scores of pharmacy school applicants vary by institution. For example, 82 percent was the average score for the University of Minnesota's fall 2015 entering class, while 78 percent was the average PCAT score for the University of Kentucky's fall 2014 incoming class. Each pharmacy school can set a minimum score to apply or be admitted, although all schools consider additional factors to PCAT scores.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison reported an average PCAT score of 74 percent for its incoming class of 2015, and although there's no minimum score requirement, the university does consider the highest scores more when making admissions decisions.
Schools also consider factors such as academic achievement, diversity, experience, communication skills and extracurricular activities when making pharmacy school admissions decisions.
