Hello! Happy New Years, everyone! So, I know there were earlier threads about this topic, but the ones I saw were from 2005. Kind of curious to see what applicants/current students/practitioners are saying... especially with the new year in progress now. For me, I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't planning for my future lifestyle, flexibility (from the various opportunities as a prospective PharmD candidate) and independence in the field. But having graduated with a BS degree, worked full-time in research, and changed career path from another profession, I can totally see the new demand for pharmacists and my passion for it is slowly increasing, as I talk to other pharmacists, and do more research about the field. What about yourselves? How did you know you wanted to pursue this path after high school? after post-undergrad degree, and/or after working in similar or other career paths? Feel free to share. I am interested to hear about everyone's stories.
