hey guys.. thanks to everyone who give insightful information on this site. i appreciate it. right now, i'm starting college and these are my classess.. english comp. gen chem I gen bio I calculus and Psyc Im thinking about taking art history but was wondering whether that was goin to be too much work. what do you think? one question i have is whether i should take speech sometime next year.. i have a terible fear of public speaking and i believe that that might slow me down. is speech a must to become a pharmacy or more importantly to get into pharmacy school.. please note that i have great communication skills specially with people, but when i stand in front of a class, i just die. another question is whether having pharmacy exposure will put me at a much higher advantage than not having any? last but not least.. am i goin in the right direction with my first semester of classess? Am i missing anything? also, i really really want to finish my pharm pre req in 2 years but from reading this forum, it seems like it takes 3 years..is it written in stone that it has to be 3 years? and if not, what does it take to finish it in 2 years? sorry for all the questions, but i appreciate any helpful feedback.. any comments or advice that you guys have may influence my decision on whether pharmacy is the right path for me.
