    lol... were there that much females in your school as well? your school has a lot more asians than mines. Also is that the Time Square walgreens?

    Yes, my school is like 70-80% female. I think the majority of students at my school are from California. Dunno about if its the Times Square Walgreens, but that is one of our sites.

      I enjoyed the part where they talked about what pharmacists do. Other than, you know, telling people where things are and calling doctors.

      I also liked the "it requires less schooling than a doctor."

      Sure, there are 6 year programs and many schools will accept you after 2-3 years of undergrad when pre-reqs are done, but that doesn't change the fact that many still get 4 year degrees first and that some schools do require a bachelors for matriculation. Strictly speaking though, the time spent getting an MD, DO, and PharmD is all 4 years in a professional program. If you want to get super technical a pharmacist has more "schooling" since our programs are typically 3 years of academic didactic classes and 1 year of rotations verses 2 and 2.
