Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
Of course we are. But we're also sick and tired of pre-meds complaining because of "too much work." There are so many pre-meds that I have difficult classes with (Physics, Organic, Upper-Level Biology) that will not stop complaining about the workload, etc. I just want to go up to them and ask if they think med school is going to be any easier. I'd love to see their response.Anyone sick and tired of lame threads like this?
I really don't think it's that bad. Of course I haven't actually been through an application cycle, but I have a pretty good idea of what it's going to be like. I've somewhat enjoyed all of the hard work I've had to do so far - it keeps me focused and motivated. As a doctor, hard work is something you can't be afraid of.
My message to complainers: suck it up and deal with it in your own way. EVERYONE has to go through with it, so your suffering in no way makes you unique.

Just wait until you get in.....med school actually makes getting into med school look pretty easy....
I dunno, while there are a lot of scary stories, every single med student I met at my high school reunion made it sound like it wasn't a big deal. Of course, one goes to Yale so there's no pressure, lol.
Still, they said it was so structured that you can't really fall behind. But then again my high school was filled with type A students anyway, so who knows what not bad is.
