I am a pre-pharmacy student. I am applying to pharmacy school this year both out of state and in state. I have got some invitation letters to apply to the schools, but I do not know about these schools at all. One of them is LECOM or Lake Erie College of Osteopathy Medicine in Pennsylvania.

After working in a pharmacy while I was in high school, my childhood dream was to become the best pharmacist possible.
I graduated from the UT College of Pharmacy in Austin, TX, in 1965.
