I'm assuming you're referring to paying for pharm school while in pharm school:jalba22 said:Does working for a pharmacy as a tech or other pharm type position help in securing some money from that retail or pharmacy company one works at to use towards paying for pharm school?
oops..yah you're right. I thought the question was weird at first. But now I get it. To reemphasize/add-on to what you said, read the fine print veryy carefully and be aware that the company usually chooses where to place you and the pay. So, if you don't mind moving to a new place, etc it could be worth it.off2skl said:Actually it sounds like you're talking about programs through your company. Many companies do have "grants" for you to go to school and the amount varies from company to company. Usually it comes with a string attached; one year of service for each year they pay toward your tuition. If you do not sign with the company for that time after you graduate then that "grant." becomes a loan, at a higher interest rate then you'd be paying your Stafford's. Read the fine print.
I know that CVS Pharmacy has a grant like program if you are employed there.rxgal8 said:I'm assuming you're referring to paying for pharm school while in pharm school:
Once you get into pharm school, you'll get your pharm intern license. As a pharm intern, you get paid approx. $15/hour (varies though) for working retail. So depending on how many hours you work, you can get some of your extra expenses out of the way but I doubt you can pay for the entire tuition from working. Well, at least in my case I can't since I owe the school about 35K a year (not including housing, etc). That's where the loans come into the pic...
