    I thought at least one person on the board would be a Pharmacist.

    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.

    UNC Charlotte, and I start on Saturday.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    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.

    Ahhh, so you got the job! Congratulations! I was wondering....

    Have you moved to LA yet?

    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.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
