How to get in pharmacy schools??! Lol. Realty is there is no jobs in this field ! Only getting worst thanks to the big chains that support opening way to many schools that now are desperate to fill in seats and you sign you life away on loans !! Gpa are lowered since The jobs have reached a jobless crisis ... ask any retail chain pharmacist do you research ! Or you will find yourself wit out a job like many if graduated today 2018 also salaries are less than it was 20 years ago but loans are getting closer than 200k on loans ! Only to get out wit out a job and full of debt

Hello! I am a 3rd year college student that wants to go to pharmacy school after I graduate in 2020. I was wondering how long I have to shadow a pharmacist. Also, do you recommend becoming a pharmacist technician before getting into pharmacy school? Please let me know ASAP!!(:
christine Awambu (4 месяца назад)
Is it better to be a pharmacy technician, shadow a pharmacist or get internship?

Do you have any friends or acquaintances who went for a PharmPhD in order to go into research? I am debating between getting that or a PharmD, although my family is heavily in favor of getting a PharmD. I am taking calc2 this summer, and next year will be finishing ochem and biochem, then I will have my pre requisites done! Thank you for your video and sharing your experiences--- : )
Big 3ye (5 месяцев назад)
+just a random gal --I just want to say thank you because the article that you shared with me was very helpful-- as well as the website in general. I am glad that I have a few more quarters before I will be submitting applications.
just a random gal (6 месяцев назад)
If you want to do bench/lab research, go for the PhD. If you want to do clinical research, go for the PharmD and get involved in clinical research opportunities while in school. If you want to do both, do both. There are joint PharmD/PhD programs out there. https://www.pharmacytimes.com/contributor/erik-hefti-pharmd-ms/2015/11/pharmd-phd-dual-degree-programs-a-candidates-perspective-on-potential-pitfalls

Thanks for your informative video! I live in TX so we have a 6 drop limit and I dropped 4 classes already. Due to this, I am a part-time student and a little scared that if I become a full-time student I will not be able to handle it and drop another course. However, I am going to suck it all up and try my best to become full-time so that I Pharmacy school admission committees or whatever it is called lol can see that I can handle the load of classes. My question is does it matter that I take long to grad with a Bachelors? ( and I am talking about more than 6 years of undergrad). I hope you see this question.

Hi I want to apply to Waterloo school of pharmacy for phd. Do we need to have work experience before we apply or I can directly apply as soon as I complete my masters.
just a random gal (7 месяцев назад)
If you are torn between pharmacy and just anything else healthcare related, look into medical laboratory science. That profession is projected to grow at %13. Plus, you don't need to go to grad school. Just get your bachelor's in medical laboratory science. https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/medical-and-clinical-laboratory-technologists-and-technicians.htm

In my opinion the best answer to having a low PCAT score even if you scored lower on your second time. "Pharmacy is about accuracy, a simple miscalculation in dose could lead to death or severly harming a patient. The PCAT in my opinion is not a best judgment of a pharmacy applicant's abilities. The test is graded about 3-5 times a year, there are many different students taking the exam at different times of that individual year. How can a test averaged at those specific times of the year be a true determinant of me getting through pharmacy school or being a good applicant? Pharmacy is about accuracy and the PCAT in my opinion is not an accurate test of my ability to be a good applicant due to the inaccuracy of the test." FYI I scored a 29 overall my first time and a 21 on my second time. Make sure to point out your highest averaged scores in individual subjects like math and science, usually pharmacy students do worse on the verbal portion of the exam making their average go down. I used this answer on why they asked me, "Why did you score so low and even lower your second time". I also got accepted to many high ranking pharmacy schools. Make sure to relate your answers specifically to pharmacy. (just a tip)

Great blog but ,How about the joblessness rate among new graduates Is staggeringly high. In the 2012 Pharmacy Graduating Student Survey conducted by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), 88.7% of graduates indicated that they had taken out student loans, with an average loan amount of $123,000.17 While the potential of a 20% (or higher) joblessness rate among new pharmacy graduates is alarming enough, the looming economic hardships and personal tragedies are incalculable. schools should be more conservative on their approach wile the market is in crisis of unemployment at unprecedented levels and only getting worst

Would you recommend people to first become a pharmacy tech and then go into studying pharmacy?
just a random gal (7 месяцев назад)
I would do it because most pharmacy jobs are retail pharmacies. You should figure out if you like that environment before you take out $200,000 in student loans. https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/pharmacy-technicians.htm https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/pharmacists.htm

Hi! I was just wondering does the undergrad college where you receive your prerequisites matter to the pharmacy school as long as your grades are good? Say it's not an amazing school or anything but you got all your required classes. Also, what advice would you have for a current high school student looking to go into this profession?
Sagar Parekh (10 месяцев назад)
Hey Autumn! I actually made a video for high schoolers and college students who are thinking about going into pharmacy! You should check it out if you have the chance!

Omg ur a lot like me, I love to help ppl and sick ppl as well also I have insanity cleanliness so I can't touch ppl and I'm so sensitive so if i see someone is so sick or in pain or die id just cry 😂 so yes I said pharmacy is great for me but as I'm studying piloting now i wanted to ask u do u think it's good to study pharmacy or not cuz so many pharmacists say don't do it and just go with piloting but oh well piloting is just so risky job Bcuz even if I get injured or crash or accident or any surgeries body problems I'll get medical failure and I can't continue my job so I've to study another Field too but as my diploma is science fiction and I love biology chemistry anatomy and these subjects I thought pharmacy is cool for me to choose but my pharmacists frds say it's too much to study, do u think it worth it ?! Or I better choose easier field ?! Btw I'm 20 so I'm still thinking Abt it

Do you have to have a bachelors degree when applying to Pharmacy school? I don't have the money for university so I will be doing all of my pre-reqs at community college. Do you think that will be fine?
Big 3ye (6 месяцев назад)
Not necessarily-- for example, 80% of University of Washington pharmacy school acceptees have a bachelors degree. What is more important is completing the pre requisites-- but more than often you will see that the pre reqs often add up to enough credits for the BS depending on which undregrad college you are at. Good luck!
Proschetta (9 месяцев назад)
Most of my classmates were from backgrounds with bachelor degrees. However that doesn’t have to be the case. Look at the individual school prerequisites.

Uhh idk if I'm taking a risk or if this will play out in my favor in the future. I'm strong in my science classes but suck at physics and idk how that will affect me in the future :/

Most pharmacist just fill out the script regardless , they do not ever help the doctor make the best choice, they do spot drugs that may interact adversely with existing drugs being taken. I know this for a fact but won't get into it.

J3tfuel (2 года назад)
Julie Assila For me, Math and Science are my two best subjects; I would advise to study a lot if not everyday. Maybe you can ask your teachers/professors for help or tutoring. Also, for the PCAT, you can take free pretests online so you can know what to expect.

You don't have to major in science to become a pharmacist but it does help you fulfill the many science prerequisites the schools will require for application. TLDR: science major = faster route to apply to pharmacy school.
