ahhh (((doin a jig))) i can't wait till august to get in on all the excitement! that was a good article - my parents always throw out my trojan mags so I never get to read these things..
ehhh.. well..... it was a good article until i read this part:
"Students must already possess a solid basic-science foundation before entering USCs PharmD program prerequisites include organic chemistry ( ) and biochemistry, microbiology and molecular biology, mammalian physiology and physics( ), calculus and statistics, to name a few." (f*** i'm so screwed)
You are right. USC does require a lot of pre-reqs!!! It is especially tough when you are a non science major but it is better to take those classes during the undergraduate years and take more clinical classes in pharmacy school.
Also, the article did not mention that the tuition is $31,000 a year at USC.
