27 is middle age, not old. I can see why you feel old since a lot of people go 6 years and graduate at 22. But 27 is not old. I am 24 hoping to get into pharmacy school Fall 2009. I will be 27 when I graduate (if I am accepted this year to my 3 year program! haha..) ...thats not 22, but thats not old either...:rolleyes:

28 next week, and I'm feeling the same way. I'm not used to feeling like the old guy, but I guess it's about time I start getting used to it. :rolleyes:

40 is middle age, not 27!

That's the time in your life when you're supposed to buy that bright yellow convertible and drive down the freeway with the top down, your comb-over blowing in wind and all. :cool:

Accepted at 21, start the program at 22, and finish at 26, not 24 like you said.
What the hell am I talking about? Guess it was too early in the morning.
Anyhow, I'm 21 right now, and I just finished my first semester, though I will still graduate at 24 since my birthday is late in the year.

NEVER EVER regret knowing what you want to do now...and what you wished you would have done at age 18, because not another day passes for regretting to choose Pharmacy from the start of college. If I relived my life, I would go through the same experiment or journey to arrive to where I am now...It was perfect! So, I'm glad I never joined any 0-6 pharmacy schools, or applied to pharmacy school in my 2nd year of college (after finishing pre-reqs)....because before pharmacy, I wanted to become a physician and dentist - not at the same time lol. however, i investigated all options....and I lost a 1-2 years because I did that. No regrets at all though...

I fully agree, I am 28 and will be 29 when I start my pharmacy program. I took many journeys through school, graduating with a B.S. in biology minor in chem. and then with a MPH with an emphasis in Toxicology, the whole time planning on doing anything but pharmacy. After all of my experience (not saying I have a lot of experience just saying my personal experiences) I know that I am ready for a pharmacy program. I feel that if I would have tried earlier in my life, I would not have been ready at all for pharmacy school.
Life is a journey that will lead you in the right direction, if you take away decisions you made in the past you would not be the same person you are today. Even the bad decisions have a purpose of steering you to your goals. You just have to learn about tomorrow through yesterday's decisions and mistakes.

27, will be 28 when I start and just shy of 32 when I graduate. Worth every second! I'm not old, I'm just older than some of my classmates.

I'm 39, I don't usually feel old till I get on this board or go to interview!! Oh well, I am still excited about going to pharmacy school next year (accepted to 2 schools). It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do and get the courage and motivation to do it.

I'm 37 and just beginning my pre-pharmacy classes. If all goes as planned, I'll finish Pharm School when I'm 43. I graduated in '93 with my B.S. in Marketing and have run my own business for the past 7 years while simultaneously mothering my 3 boys. Now that they are all in school, I'm really ready for something more, career-wise. Looking forward to a new path toward the rest of my life. If I only knew back then what I know now!:rolleyes:

26 and damn proud of it, I know i got into UNC because I "played up" my age as an asset. I would rather be 26 then 18 or 22 anyday, no offense.
