SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) But I don't want to change my major. I understand the market for jobs isn't great right now, and that's not likely to change much by the time I graduate. I'm mostly okay with that because I want to do residencies and then spend some time working with MSF, so making 6 figures right out of the gate is not that important to me. I feel that my interests would be better served in the long run by going this route. I also plan to have a kid or two in the next 5-10 years, so I'm even okay with working part time if that's what work I can find when I'm done with school. I'm even okay with having to live in a rural area, so long as I'm within a 2 state radius of Washington. But still, all of the doom and gloomers who come here are making me feel more insecure on top of my personal insecurities. I've known for a long time that I want to have a career where I feel useful. I considered teaching and MD, but I feel that pharmacy is really the best fit for me. I worked in a group home for DD adults for just over 2 years, and that really helped to push me in this direction over the others. Some of the medication related horror stories, oh boy could I go on about those! But anyways, I've been feeling pretty down this whole semester, and I was hoping some of you guys might be able to offer some advice on how to keep my focus on my goals, rather than hearing what the detractors are saying.
