You need to have several years of undergrad first.

+1. Though I think I know what the problem might be; it would just require assuming that the OP is very stupid.

LOL if you're applying to Pharmacy straight out of High School then I can't help but laugh and I'm disappointed in your lack of understanding on the process of becoming of Pharmacist.

Hey "bubblepenguin," I too wanted to be a pharmacist however not anymore. The two schools in Ontario are at Waterloo and at U of T the trick however is that there are multiple pre-requ's that you have to take (which are all university credits).In addition, U of T requires you to complete 1 year of undergrad whereas Waterloo expects you to complete 2 years of undergrad + the pre-requs. Personally,I liked the U of T one because it had not that many pre-reque's and also that's one year less. However, what through me off a little was the whole thing where you needed a physics credit (either a grade 12 one or a university credit). So, if you are up for it , then do it. However, What i liked about the waterloo one is that if you are determined to become a pharmacist, you can apply for the "conditional acceptance to the pharmacy" program or something like that, where you need to have a 90% + average and they will automatically save you a spot for the pharmacy program--that does not mean however that you can get away with not doing the pre-requ's. You still got to do them, there is no "easy" way out of it. Hope that helps!

^ Those prereqs are typically also requirements for life science degrees, so it's not a big deal to have to complete them. If you have problems learning basic biochem, microbio, genetics, etc..., then you shouldn't be considering a career in the health professions.
