Okay, here is my dilemma. I am debating between the U of MN pharmacy school or Albany Medical school. I have 2 weeks to decide. My basic dilemma is that I really don't want to live in Albany, NY. I dont' want to live there for 4 years and waste my life. Also, I figured I will be about $300K in debt after residency. That translates into $3000/month of bills I would have to pay for 10 years after I am 36 years old after residency. That means I will be 46 by the time I pay off my school loans. Albany Medical College isn't a great school. It's very expensive and not in the top 50 for US news and world report. Also, I dont' know how much fun working my butt off for the next 7+ years will be. However, I really would rather be a doctor than a pharmacist. I keep imagining being a doctor and telling people what they need and thinking that it would be pretty cool. With respect to pharmacy tho: I totally love Minnesota. The U of MN pharmacy school is the 5th best in the nation. Tuition is low. I will make between $80+/year getting out, working 45 hours/week only. It is still science, just more boring, depending on how I look at it. It was never my dream. That pretty much sums up my dilemma. Any help from you all would be greatly appreciated!
