How to gain your licence to practise as a pharmacist in the US


I am a pharmacist with a 3 year bachelor degree graduated in 1999. I have been trying to get my American registration for years. NABP allowed me to sit the FPGEE exam and TOEFL which I both passed and a few months ago they wrote to me saying that I am not eligible for certification because I have a 3 year degree. But why not telling me that 4 years ago before I spent so much time studying and spending lots of money. I tried to write to them asking them to give me an explanation but of course they ignored my question. They are so unprofessional and unfair. Is anyone in the same situation as me? Or does anyone have any suggestions of what to do next in order to get my licence? My husband works in USA and it looks like I will never practice pharmacy in Us. I am devastated .......I would love to hear from anyone who has any suggestions. Many thanks. Catalina
