I had the privilege of being accepted into one of the top 20 pharmacy schools in the country. However, my youthfulness and minor addiction to an online video game squandered my hopes and dreams of becoming a pharmacist. The first year consisted of me failing 3 classes in my spring semester. The first by not turning in a paper. the 2nd by ending a long term relationship and the third was general laziness and skipping class to play games. I appealed my release from school and was given a second chance to repeat the semester, only to fall right back into my bad habits. Three years later, I'm regretting every minute, every hour I wasted on that stupid game, and how it ruined my life. I joined the Air Force Reserves for discipline - something I was lacking in my younger days and am now focused and reinvigorated about my passion for pharmacy. Along the past few years, my Uncle died as well, almost in my hands from 3 hornet stings ( two to the throat and one to the back of the leg). As I was giving CPR on the floor of the lack house, my mind scrambled for any knowledge I retained from pharmacy school. I remembered family members mentioning a hornets nest down stairs, and immediately noticed the his throat swelling up like a grape fruit. Finally, I screamed for an epi-pen or benadryl, as tears rolled down my face. He died 3 days later and I was left wishing there was more I could do at the hospital to help out. It was then I realized I wasn't ready to give up on my dream. Over the past year, I have slowly been trying to rebuild the wake of destruction that was left by my immature, unmotivated self. I've begun teaching pharmacy technician classes at a small institute, just to get back into the swing of things.Having been a tech for almost 7 years at a pharmacy, I felt I had a lot of knowledge to pass on about the real life circumstances that arise in the pharmacy. So far, I have had a great time sharing my experiences with others and instilling quality work and pride in new technicians entering the field. My question is, realistically, what are my chances of getting into another pharmacy school? Undergrad consisted of a B.S in Biology with a minor in chem. Biochemistry, immunology, physiology, bacteriology, o-chem were all passed with A's in the class. Overall, my GPA was around 3.3I believe. My pcat's rocked with 88, 92, 95 in the three main core categories, math, life sciences and chemistry. Employment consisted as a medical technician in an Alzheimer's and dementia unit, 7 years as a church custodian, multiple years as a pharmacy tech and a couple miscellaneous extra curricular activities. I know it may be a long shot, but to me it's still something I want to fight for no matter how hard it may be. Any advice would be extremely grateful.
