    i dont know about the age, but you do not need to have a bachelors degree to get a license. you can either attend those schools to get licensed or study on your own and take the exam. you can find plenty of books online. the exam covers basic stuff some laws of pharmacies, conversions gram to miligram to tablets, simple math. and few drugnames but the test is doable.

    Requirements vary by state. You didn't state your location, but I'm assuming North Carolina since you talked about UNC. You can get the details at the NC Board of Pharmacy website: http://www.ncbop.org/index.html

    From what I've read, it seems like NC doesn't require certification or classes to start working as a tech. You just need to get a job and then apply for your tech license within 30 days of hiring.

    As far as advice... just get some extracurriculars/pharmacy experience under your belt and keep your grades up. :thumbup:
