I attended Duns Scotus College in Southfield, MI and then UC, but do not have a degree. I majored in "undecided" while at U.C.

I now own my own Freight Transportation consulting firm, now in my 30th year. When I want to scare my wife, I suggest that I might go back and finish my degree. Two of my kids have already and my wife has a masters, so I think it's going to be my turn.

I just got my first "real" job working for a professional soccer team in LA in group sales. Got to start in sales basically, but you could get anything from sales, marketing, facility management, or even player personnel management within the world of sport. Just my opinion, but you can't beat going to a stadium everyday for work

I started pharmacy school on Wed. I am much older than the average pharn student and got a BA in history several years ago from George Washington University.

One thing I will say about pharmacy school, if you are in your teens or early twenties, make sure it is what you really want to do. There is no way I could/would have done all the coursework, rotations and required work experience at such a young age. Not because I couldn't handle it, but because pharm school is very serious, it is a professional school, and, IMO, your early 20's should be about experiencing new things and having fun. Pharm school= serious lifelong career, college=learning, fun and self discovery.

Let me know if you need help with organic, I loved that stuff for some odd reason.

Just turned 18 a few months ago. I have 2 years of Pre-Pharmacy before I can get into the actual Pharmacy school at UC. I did very well in Chemistry in high school and actually enjoyed it a little..which is why I chose pharmacy.

Did you do pre-pharmacy or get directly into the pharmacy school?

I took alot of the pre-reqs the are involved in pre-pharmacy over the last couple years and had satisfied alot of the others during my undergrad years.
You can always switch pretty easily from pre-pharm to bio or chemistry for a major.
All I am saying is the pharmacy school is a huge financial and time commitment and very competitive. Think about what you want out of life right now before diving headlong into a something that can be very life consuming.
My advice: Take your basic classes, don't sweat a career like pharmacy for a few years and go start a band or something.;)

I disagree. I was a Sports and Rec. Major at Temple University and ended up getting an internship with the Frederick Keys (Orioles A club) after my freshman year. It was in Group sales and boy did I hate it. Working 9-4 during the offseason and during away games, while working 8 from an hour until the game ended (usually around 11:00 but I've gotten out as late as 1:30 thanks to rain delays). It was comprised of a lot of b*tch work (phone calls, getting events set up, and doing nothing). I really felt like I wasn't getting much of an education (including the internship and the classes) so I decided to change to Accounting. I like it a lot better, and although not the most interesting job in the world, I'm actually learning quite a lot and there will be some money out there for me once I graduate which will be in a year.

I heard a saying once, "Don't make your hobby your profession, or else you'll grow to hate it." Well, I'm not sure if that's completely true in any case, but I found there to be some sort of relevance in it, atleast for me.

I wasn't a fan of interning in minor league baseball either, but I spent two years with the Cleveland Cavaliers and loved every moment of it. The hours are long and the pay isn't the greatest but I'd much rather work in sports than anywhere else. I guess to each his own. Good to know that you found something you don't want to do for your career, that's what internships are best for in my opinion.

If you can be successful in the pharmacy program and want to stay in this region, stay with it. It'll be competitive and pretty tough while in school, however, there's a possibility that there could be a shortage of pharmacists in the Cincinnati area in the next 5-10 years.

Plus they make pretty good coin too. ;)

It's funny you say that because that's exactly the reason I wouldn't take anything back. That's a big thing that's overlooked about how important internships are. Sure, you can learn a lot about the in's and out's of the industry, but most importantly you can decide whether or not you're cut out for the profession.

You're scaring me :D.

The thing that is keeping me with my decision is that I didn't know that pharmacy was big money till after I picked it. I went onto the Bureau of Labor's website and saw some of those #s and it got me excited.

Sounds very strenuous and apparently it is evolving into more patient care than Pharmacists have done in the past. If it doesn't work out i'll probably end up in Chem or Bio..maybe Sports Management or Business.

Don't need to worry about that now, though.

NKU, English major but only completed three years. Looking back now I wish I had taken something that would help me build my business. I'm probably like a lot of small business owners in that I found a skill I was pretty good at, decided to take it independent, and while I'm still good at said skill I am somewhat lacking in knowing how to turn it into a successful business. I'm not doing too bad a job of it, learning as I go, but it would be nice to have learned some of the fundamentals. I'm stumbling and bumbling around in Quick Books and hoping I don't make too much of a mess of things.

I actually do work in my chosen field, which accounts for the extremely sporadic nature of my employment. It also means I have to find alternate creative ways to pay the bills sometimes. I do a lot of editing work so I've gotten pretty good at that, not that anyone would know that from my posts.

Wow, I had not heard that. A good friend of mine just started a fellowship at a theater in Minneapolis and I'm surprised she hasn't mentioned it. I always assumed that Jeune Lune did very well in Minneapolis...is there any chance they will survive this?

A lot of great theater companies have come out of Lecoq...Pig Iron, Footsbarn, Cirque du Soleil, and what I believe to be the greatest theater company on the planet, Theatre Complicite in London. It is an extraordinary school in many ways, and definitely the only place in the world I could have gotten that training. I do have very mixed feelings about my education there, though. Jacques Lecoq had died less than two years before I got there and I think the school was in a state of transition. What they teach is incredible -- seriously mind-blowing, really organic stuff -- but their teaching methods range from joyous to downright brutal. They do not believe in students asking questions (especially in the first year) or in positive feedback. And there is a cutthroatness and snobbery about it which means you're not supposed to talk about that part of the school. I had to grow about 10 layers of skin just to survive, and holy crap, did I smoke like a nerve-ridden chimney when I was there. But I did it and it was probably good for me.

So people have heard not only of Drew but of Lecoq as well. My mind is officially blown. And yes, Dom, the name often makes people smile. Run around your professional life telling people you went to school at Jock Lecock. Go ahead, try it :)

Sorry to hijack the thread. It's not often that I get to talk about this stuff with baseball people.

Survival depends on how you define it. I'm sure the actors will find work.
Theatre Complicite is amazing, I agree. Their "street of crocodiles" opened up new perspectives and vistas on art, life and the 20th century. One of the best productions I have ever seen.

It used to, but it's lost some popularity over the last few years (it won the Tony for best regional theatre in 2005). As you know I'm an avid theatre goer myself and I've lived in the Twin Cities for two years now and have been there once. I saw Figaro. It was a very interesting and I enjoyed it quite a bit, but it wasn't for the masses. They're very innovative, but my understanding from folks who have lived here for a while is that they've really gone a lot further "out there" than they used to. I don't know if that's true, but it wouldn't surprise me. It's too bad because with the travesty that has become Broadway (may as well rename it Disney mid-town) over the past 5 years, we need more innovators and original artists.

We used to go to most of the TJL productions for years, but in the last few years they have done fewer new productions and presented mostly older productions, like Figaro, which first was presented in 2003. As their reputation grew, they focused a lot of time and resources on national and international tours and sacrificed some of their twin cities focus.
The last great TJL I saw were their 2 Moliere productions in 2006: Tartuffe and the Miser - which was a great season with Kafka's Amerikka, and mefistofele. After that year, four of the original five members either left the company or stepped down from their co-Artistic Director positions, leaving Dominic Serrand as the sole Director. The 2007 season programming was a huge disappointment and then of course 2008 followed.
I'll miss them - locally only the Guthrie's productions are on the same level and their programming can be very conservative a lot of the time.

I was very close to Sports Admin at UC, but ended up doing Pharmacy. Oh well we'll see how it goes.

My sister earned her PharmD at UC. Those two years of pre-pharm are so very important. Looking back on her application process, she had pre-pharm classmates with over a 3.6 who did not get accepted into the PharmD program. I don't mean to intimidate you to program, just be mindful that it is competitive and let that drive you to excel.

Enjoy UC. I spent five wonderful years there.

I have a B.S. in electrical engineering. I start part-time graduate classes for my M.S.E.E. in a few weeks.

Oh you scared me.

I realize the competitiveness, and i'm hoping if I don't get into the Pharmacy program that I can fallback onto a Chemistry degree or Biology degree.

I'm not entirely sure, but do you know if they look at more than just GPA when admitting students into the school of Pharmacy?

There's an interview and they look at the full resume. If you are well-rounded, and don't embarrass yourself in an interview, you shouldn't have any problem being accepted with a 3.5 or greater. The student I alluded to earlier was not well-rounded. Another student said that he "wasn't good at following directions" in the interview. Whoops.

But, GPA is very important and I'd consider a 3.5 GPA to be the minimum requirement to gain entrance into pharmacy school. Take advantage of all the academic support opportunities in the math and science courses. There are people out there to make sure you do well in these pre-pharm classes, but it's up to you to use them. Participate in extra-curricular activities and community service projects. They're a great way to meet people while building a resume. Lastly, limit partying to the weekends. Stick with those three things, and you're well on your way.

It is challenging, but that doesn't mean it has to be intimidating. Also, remember that you aren't in this alone. Make friends with others in your program. Push each other and learn from each other. Peers are great motivators when it comes to doing well at school.

Not sure about UC, but almost everyone requires the PCAT. The PCAT is basically a SAT type test the focuses on your Bio, Anatomy, Chem and Organic Chem studies. Also has a verbal and math component. Not as tough as it may seem as your grade on it is relative to the rest of your peers taking the test.
I would suggest showing some interest in pharmacy in your work experience. I didn't start working in a pharmacy till after I began applying, but interviewers seemed to appreciate the fact that I was making the effort. It will also help you decide if it's something you really want to do. So go get a job in some sort of pharm related field for a day or 2 a week(BTW, retail seems to be on the way out, so don't dread that as the only option for pharmacist.)

I was just on the BG site a little while ago going through some different things relating to homecoming, the football schedule, etc. when I saw a note that the baseball team is about to have open tryouts. Hey, I've still got a year of eligibility left! What if I enroll in classes and show up at the tryouts? Does the head coach have a sense of humor? Would he find empathy with a 62 y.o. infielder with bad knees and a bum shoulder? Would the kids in the locker room look up to me or would I just be 'old school' to them?

Somehow managed to graduate from there in four years. :) With good grades even!

Ohio University was on my shortlist of schools, and my cousin (same age as I am) and I drove up to check it out together. One of the pamphlets they gave us had a rundown of the vital stats etc. of the school. There was something like 20,000 undergrads there at the time...and 120,000 living graduates.

My cousin read this to me in the car, then paused for a second, then said, "Um...doesn't that seem like a pretty low number of graduates for that big of a school?" In other words, any recent five-year span of students pretty much equaled the number of people of reasonable age who had graduated. We were a little more baffled as to why they chose to advertise this :) I mean, I don't think a school HAS to say how many living graduates it has.

So you're definitely deserving of congratulations. But isn't OU's journalism school one of the best around? Hopefully that program turns out a fair amount of graduates.

I've never seen that stat in the school's literature, but that's pretty funny. :) It's probably higher these days (I would hope, anyway).

The journalism school is (allegedly) one of the best around, and from what I hear it's getting new facilities soon. I happen to work with a lot of OU grads, none of whom I knew in college, and I've run into quite a few OU journalism grads at various work-related conferences, events, etc. So from my perspective, the program turns out a lot of graduates. No idea if that's actually true or not. :)
