Hello, Recently I was accepted into Rutgers 6 year pharmacy program and would wish to get a feel for the pharmacy profession. How good is Rutgers pharmacy, my family says its good but it has a relatively low rank compared to other schools? How is life in pharmacy school? My true interest is research. This year I did research on streptococcus bacteria and fell in love. I hope to work for a phamaceutical firm (ngn) or the world health organization. How prominent are pharmacists in a research and what is the average salary of those who work for Merck and other large pharmaceutical companies. How realistic are these career goals when working as a pharmacist?
