P1 year first semester was really easy. P2 year was when the blues hit, as we essentially had to do double the amount of studying.

After a couple of days my main thought was, "I have to go to school with all of these idiots?" Then again I ended up working for CVS to pay the bills so

As a P2, I still feel like I have it way better than the P1's. P1 is alot of busywork. Essyas, reflections, projections, homework, "soft" classes, etc. not to mention the fact that we were oing HIPAA training, CPR training, orientation, meeting all of our classmates, moving to a new city (for many of us), and trying to figure it all out. P2 year, I go to lectures, study, chill, and get alot more sleep. The classes are more "sciencey", but that's what I came to RX school for.

I just finished my first week as a P3. Definitely a bit overwhelming. The classes are a bit easier than P2, but the standard classes plus electives plus a masters program plus student organization involvement plus research plus work plus a social life is a bit ridiculous. Not sure I can keep it all up.

Once you realize the less your study for pharmacotherapy the better you do, P3 becomes so much better.

P1 was easy. P2 sucked. P3 was better. P4 was a breeze.
