Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
rgporter said:A question for those of you who have much more experience than myself. I am married, will be starting school in August. We don't have any children currently but we definitely don't want to wait until school is over to start having children. My question is this, how were you able to handle child care? We don't really want to use a day care, my spouse doesn't trust them (apathetic employees, etc.) plus they're so expensive. The solution we keep coming back to is that my spouse will have to stay home with the children (it's what she wants to do anyway), but the finaid package won't allow us to survive this way.
How did you manage your time/money? any advice is greatly appreciated.

She said to get used to not knowing everything and be cool with that. Learn what you need to and more and be happy with that. Med school is hard but doesn't have to be insane.
Hopefully she's right. I'd like to stay married through this too.
