    Why don't you first tell us why you are interested in pharmacy?

    I decided to go with Pharmacy, cuz there is so much you can do with the degree... You can work in so many different types of settings... eg Industrial, Hospital, Retail... and i get a doctorate in 6 yrs...

    ....then just elaborate on your reasoning...there are a lot of degrees that have multiple career paths as well, so you need to continue on and give details to your train-of-thought.

    Depending on the school, the six year thing may be upped to a min. of 7 years with a preferred degree (like my school). So, if you want to be competitive then a degree may be necessary before acceptance (esp. in the next few years), unless you have already been accepted. I agree that there are many settings avail. for PharmDs, but what other reasons do you have for going into pharmacy?

    Field of Science I find Interesting
    Good Pay
    Can work almost anywhere (location wise)
    Many different things you can do with the degree
    Help People
    Many Jobs Available
    Hours are very reasonable (so you can have an outside life/family)

    (in no particular order)

    Its just a very good field.
