    Just a newbie on this forum, was actually directed here by a pal of mine. I wanted to find out if one can go to Pharm School part-time or whether it must be a fulltime venture. I'm going to be graduating in 2005 by God's grace as a Bio major with a minor in Soc and was wondering if I could just graduate, work for a while in order to save up money to go to Pharm school or just work and go part-time.

    Thoughts, opinions, suggestions are all welcome. Thanks.

    I'm in AL and they don't do that here unless you fail of course and then you're not allowed to continue in all courses and have to play "catch up."

    Good luck with that....

    I'm almost positive that every PharmD program is full time only. Some non-trad pharmD programs might be nights or part time, but those are only for BS pharms who want the PharmD. :thumbup:

    Well, there is always Creighton's fully online program. If you want to do pharmacy though, you need to have your priority and concentrate fully on pharmacy :)

    I didn't know if they all were or not b/c I know our flunkies have found places that offer courses in the summer like pharmacology. I think oklahoma was a big one they were looking into.
    With that information I thought that those schools who are offering things in the summer might let you lighten your load in during the year to something like 14-15 hrs. Which is still "full time" but would offer more opportunity to work.

    I wonder if every class has to be taken from a "pharmacy" school. For instance, would they let someone take pharmacology with the MS or PhD pharmacology students at another school?

    There's a guy in my class with a PhD in pharmacology and they are making him take the entire sequence of pharmacology classes. They didn't even let him out of the 1 credit intro course.

    Thanks for the heads up on this guys. I am an international student and as such I also was curious to know if financial aid and or scholarships, grants and things of the sort are available to us. I know in my undergrad we aren't qualified for fin aid.

    I believe there are some private schools that have scholarships for students regardless of your status after your first year enrolled. I know Howard does.
    Good luck! :)
