Has anyone seen this combo put to good use? I technically just finished pharm school last Friday and feel like I need to start planning my next venture. I hate wasting time. So far Ive got two buddies that are PharmD/JD and it doesnt sound like they are all that impressed as to what opportunities are being presented to them. On the flip side, Ive been told by a few lawyers and MDs that areas such as patent law and malpractice can be very lucrative. My grades from pharm school vary. My first year I joined a frat and partied hard and had a good time. About half way through I got my stuff together and finished with a bunch of consecutive semesters on the deans list with my final year being solid As. Do you think going to a tier 1 school is imperative? I doubt I would be accepted into one, but a tier 2 is a possibility. I have an automatic in at a tier 3 through personal connections, but Im wondering if it would even be worth it. From what Ive heard- law school isnt like pharm school, as in, your college name is really important. I also understand that JDs streight out of school usually work long hours for minimal pay. The thing thats kind of frusturating is, I can put in long days at my current retail job next year and clear 200k. Ive got buddies saying they made 90k working 80 hours a week as a new hire for a firm. Id easily double that if I put the time in at a local CVS or walgreens. I really dont see myself counting pills for the rest of my life so in a sense Im already looking for an exit strategy.
