Well first of all, Hi.. My name is Sarah and I live in a small town outside of Peoria, IL. There I work for a wonderful man who has spent the last 3 years showing me the ropes to become a pharmacist. In other words, I am a pharmacy technician of almost 4 years... (since I was 15) The rewards are great.. amazing pay for a HS/College student.. get to know your customers.. and generally I love it. In fact, the pharmacist (there's only one) enjoys my company and lets me take over.. I do everything he does and on several occasions have helped him figure out his problems.. Well to make a long story short, I am from a very small, rural town.. Corn is all around me and in my high school, learning Chemistry and Biology wasn't nearly a priority compared to Ag shop and Livestock. This year I started first year of Pre-pharmacy at Western Illinois University - great school and close to home.. I was patting myself on the back for surviving a B in the class.. because unlike most students in that class, I had to teach myself everything. (the teacher assumed we were all educated in chemistry) Most of the "sciencey" classes.. I am getting B's in.. and that's with a lot of studying.. and a lot of luck This summer I am taking 9 hours, next fall 18 hours.. etc. I am trying to finish pre-pharmacy in two years... But my GPA is at a 2.5 accum./3.0 science. I figured I'd be okay.. but now I am so worried. I cannot give up! I have came so far.. Help!
