Usually, how many out-of-state students do you accept every year?

It ranges anywhere from 10-20% every year -- depending on how many out-of-state applications we receive. We can only select from those that apply! Our entering class mirrors our applicant pool.

Should the LORs come from people that know me longer or people that know me for a shorter time but have better articulation skills? Thanks!

You shouldn't have to sacrifice one for the other. Your letters should come from individuals who know you well AND can articulate that in a letter. A letter from someone that doesn't know you very well can't possibly be very detailed or provide helpful information to the Admissions Committee. A person that can't articulate themselves and address those areas being asked about (in the PharmCAS letter of recommendation) will probably not serve you well. Right? I addressed this issue in a previous post: http://pharmdadmissions.ucsf.edu/2008/09/are-letters-of-recommendation-really.html

Ask me anything

I took my physics and calculus pre-reqs in 2002. Do I need to repeat these courses for the current application?

No, you do not need to repeat them. We do not have an expiration date for prerequisite requirements.
