Man oh man -- did anyone read the story on CNN about the pharmacist shortage and the new grad starting off at a $90K salary? It's crazy. <a href="http://fyi.cnn.com/2002/fyi/teachers.ednews/04/04/pharmacist.sh" target="_blank">Pharmacist Shortage</a>

As someone who worked for awhile before starting on the road to optometry, I can definitely say that money isn't everything. I know there are a lot of other professions where I could make a higher salary, but I am so excited about doing something I know I'm going to enjoy that I would never think of doing anything else.
