Here's my situation: I have 3 years finished toward my biology degree, then I took 2 years off from school and had a baby. During those 3 yrs I was completely burnt out on school and had no idea what I really wanted to do with my life, and my grades reflect it (it's so irritating because I know I could have aced all of those classes, I just didn't have the ambition at the time). I only have a 2.94 cumulative. After talking to my pharmacist father-in-law, I have finally found a career that actually jumps out at me. I have finally found that 'something' that really makes me want to open a book and study it! Since I have spent all of this time unsure of my future, I have absolutely nothing substantial to put on my resume. I have never worked in a pharmacy, I have never volunteered at a hospital, I have never done research, all I have done is waited tables to pay my way through school. So here enlies the problem: now I'm a mother and if I were to go to school and try to work in a pharmacy, it would actually cost me money because I wouldn't make enough to pay for daycare. I still have to take Statistics, Economics and both semesters of A&P, and I should probably retake a class or 2, so I am going to apply for Fall 09 admission to South Carolina College of Pharmacy. Is that enough time to get experience under my belt? What if I don't get any experience at all? Are there people with less than stellar grades AND no experience who get admitted? Are there any mothers out there who are struggling to juggle all of this? Even if you aren't a mom, please respond, I'm just looking for a little insight.
