I finished all my prereqs for pharmacy school, didn't get in this year. Hopefully a full year with 15+ units per quarter and straight A's will help my application this year to get in next year in addition to research experience. Since my prereqs are done I'm debating between two routes: 1.) Keep going to school full time taking some upper divs and maybe retake a few bad grades from the past. Also continue volunteering 4 hours a week (currently have about 200 hours of volunteer work done). 2.) Get Tech license and work part time and go part time school taking fewer classes (10 units maybe?). Now I don't really have the option to do full time school and full time tech work since that would be very difficult (not sure if anyone does that) since I also have research commitment that will be taking up a lot of hours by itself. I'm wondering just how much better tech experience would help my application? I don't even think I will have time to get tech license (live in CA) and want to spend summer on PCAT study. And if I get one next fall I'll probably already have sent in all my applications by August (applying early like advised), so I don't even know if I can put it in my application that will be a tech next year. Any advice?
