SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi guys, I am in the summer of my senior year in high school and freshmen year in college, and to say the least, I can not wait to be a pre-pharmacy major at the Ohio State University! Recently, due to the competitive nature (I would say), of being accepted into pharmacy school, I realized more and more students have somewhat, to a lot of experience in the pharmacy world, before going into pharmacy school. Therefore, I went off, studied my tail off, and passed the national exam of becoming a certified pharmacy technician. I was just wondering, is it worth holding a job while taking pre-pharmacy courses? The positive thing is, i'll receive a good boost on my resume and cash flow, however; I know my grades will drop. Should I wait until the summer of my freshmen to sophomore year to work as a pharmacy technician? Thank You!
