Best Major to Apply to Pharmacy School

There is no requirement or restriction on undergraduate majors for pharmacy school. Many students choose to pursue Biological Sciences and Chemistry majors as many of the pharmacy prerequisites are requirements for those majors. Other students pursue a wide variety of majors (business, art, psychology, economics, engineering, etc) before beginning their pharmacy careers. In the end, successful completion of prerequisites is what really matters; however, choosing a biology or chemistry (or similar major) may give you a stronger science background to prepare you for the material presented to you in pharmacy school.

The best major for pharmacy school would be any major that you would enjoy. The worst major to pick would be one that you are forced into doing by following what your friends are doing or what your parents are telling you to do. By picking something you enjoy, your college experience will be more enjoyable, and you will probably perform better than if you pick something you dislike. Some other advice I have is that by picking an easier major, you may have a higher chance of getting accepted into school with that higher GPA than performing average with a harder major.
