Abstract

The purpose of this study was to offer a model for admissions to pharmacy colleges not using a weighted average formula and to test its consistency and predictive validity. Data from 247 applicants revealed that seven predictor variables showed a significant impact on the admissions process, and five predicted academic success (e.g., mathematics grade point average).
