Squint your eyes and look closer.

The hardest part in pharmacy is girls. I mean there will be a lot of hot girls in your school and you will have a hard time to focus on study while seating next to your hot classmate.

:rolleyes: Hopefully maturity develops somewhere along the way. :smuggrin:

I'd say the hardest thing is putting up with BS and busy work. The practical information isn't hard to learn as long as you realize its stuff that you need to know for the future. I'd say I hated both med chem and bio chem the most, and I liked therapeutics the most.

Free pizza? I went to the wrong pharmacy school.

Free food is the ultimate way of getting people to your organizational meetings. Pizza, subs, Olive Garden, Panera, etc. Not free for the organizations to buy, obviously, but free for the attendees. My school did a lot of things like that, with bring your own beverage.

ASP gives out little tickets for pizza after their meeting, like you're going to Chuck E Cheese's or Gattiland. If that were the case, they'd let you step in line for the salad bar or buy beer, too. Free games would be nice...

It's best just to stay away from the free pizza. It just gives you bad breath and heartburn anyway, which you don't need.

Too bad they're all married, engaged, or have a boyfriend. Trust me, I've done the ring check. If they don't have a ring, I ask one of their friends.

You gotta scope out the pre-pharmers. That's what I did. She graduates this May...woot. But once they hit pharmacy school...nah, they are already spoken for. It's some sort of law or something.

Yeah, I will look for a nurse too because in my school there are nurse, dentist, and pharmacy programs in the same building. Some nurses are hot, and they probably have more respect for you than another pharmacist.

Go for a dentist. Big money!! But like you said, you might not get the respect you deserve as a pharmacist...its a shallow world...most of us know it.


For a guy, why are you in such a hurry to get tied down?! (I understand women have a biological clock and want to start a family before early thirties)

serious relationship or Marriage = no life

serious relationship + pharmacy school = no life, no time, and no money

I have no interest in procreating (neither does my boyfriend) but we both agree that life is easier when you're in a relationship. Sure the social life isn't as active in the traditional going out-sense, but trolling for bootie can be exhausting! I'm 25! I'm entirely too old to be out until 3am every night at the bar.

How do I scope out pre-pharmers, oh wise one? I don't think going to the undergrad campus and asking each girl if they're pre-pharm or not would work.

I would have to say med chem and pharmco kinetics would be the hardest thing in pharmacy school and even then it wasn't that hard. Everything else is memorization and no really tough concepts to grasp. Even if you don't completely understand med chem or kinetic calculations you can still bs your way through those subjects and easily get a's and b's in other subjects and easily graduate. All you have to do is give yourself enough time read and memorize the material.


The thing I hated most was proabably on rotations the school required us to make a notebook and do some irrelevant tasks/reports that took away valuable time and experience from the rotation.

The thing I liked most was compounding lab and and learning the whole picture of a disease state and how the drugs worked in the body.

Pre-pharmacy clubs need mentors...those cool pharmacy students that take the time to hit on younger...er I mean advise younger students...
