Oregon State University, my old school, has a School of Pharmacy. It takes tons of science, math, and is a 6-year degree.

You're welcome. I think that pharmacists earn very good money, their job is very important; if they make a mistake, people could die.

Why would u want to stand around all day counting pills and acting like some health care professional? Either go to med school or do something valuable with your life.

After 4 yr of college u have to take an exam called PCAT .. Pharm school it's 6 yrs
I can tell u many things but idk ur questions ..
Requirements u have to take during undergrad: 2 semesters of bio, Chem, organic chem, biochem , physics
the best major it's chemistry ..
During ur undergr it's good to volunteer in hospital like ER or oncology department .etc... do a research during summer .. and try to either volunteer or work as a pharmacist technician
Becoming a pharmacist it's hard but you can do it.. try to maintain a gpa of 3.3 ..
Also if you are not accepted u can ask them what to do to improve ur chances ( retaking classes or taking high level of chem classes)
My cousin she is in pharm school .. when she applied 1st time she wants accepted she did a post bacc( 1 yr ) and at the 2nd time she was accepted ..there are many ways :) and pharmacy it's an excellent choice don't listen to ppl who think its not worth it they just don't have any idea ...
sorry I wrote too much ..
