As long as your undergrad meets all the pre-reqs, it doesn't matter what your degree is in. Any sort of biology/physiology courses could only help, in my opinion.
Wow, I could have almost written that post.
When I entered into my freshmen year of college, I wanted to be a vet. At the time, I thought it would be beneficial for me to major in Animal Science. However, my uncle advised me to major in something a bit more broad. So, I majored in Microbiology and Cell Science with a "pre-vet" track.
Fast forward a couple of years and I now changed my mind to pharmacy. When I decided to switch, I spoke to a few pharmacy advisor's about my "pre-vet" classes. They told me that as long as I took the prerequisites, then I'm okay
Cju101, I don't think you should worry too much b/c the classes required for veterinary school are the same ones required for pharmacy school (with the exception of Human Anatomy/Physiology). Just make sure you fit human anatomy and physiology into your animal science major over the course of the next two years
As far as your "extra" education with the animal science classes...hmmm...I don't see how it would hurt you once you enter pharmacy school
Same exact situation here, and actually i think its pretty common. When the dean of LECOM Bradenton called to tell me I was accepted, he said he had read my personal statement, which went into detail about how i changed my mind form vet to pharmacy. He said he did the exact same thing. Both of the pharmacists I work for now also did the same thing.
I am currently trying to write my personal statement for pharmacy school. I'm currently debating if I should even talk about my past veterinary experience or just leave it out and make it pharmacy oriented.
I'm just concerned that if I talk tooo much about veterinary medicine, I would give off the impression that I'm not "over" that profession. Do you have any advice on that subject
Tell 'em you're considering veterinary pharmacy???
All I have.
