It really doesn't matter whether you go 0-6 or 2+4 until after your 2nd year. Most schools have you doing the basic science prereqs your first 2 years anyway. If you decide to switch career paths, your credits should transfer to most 4 year schools, where you could pursue a 4 year degree in the field of your choosing. That would be the case for most public and many of the private schools out there. Some of the newer pharm schools popping up that are just pharmacy schools without any other established programs may not have that luxury, but most of the more established schools should give you few, if any, problems. If the job market stays as it is (speculative statement) the PharmD degree with no BS/BA won't be a deterrent. Even in a down market, the doctorate level degree with a residency or a few years of experience will put you over many of the competing recent grads allowing you a little breathing room. Getting a 4 year degree may allow you a little time to "experience" college and give you an edge over some of your peers in terms of developing study habits, time management skills, etc, but it all depends on your life and any other factors you may be considering.
I hope that wasn't too much of a ramble.
