    So 2 years ago, i decided to take a break after one year of school, i meant to only take a year off, but found it really hard to push myself to go back. Ended up taking 2 off but discovered what i want to do and grew up quite a bit so i feel more prepared now. I'm really excited about this step in my life and hope its the right one! Just wanted to share :) Only working two more weeks full time then down to 3 days a week or so. My Major is BioChemistry

    Congrats!

    I was close to switching majors/dropping out. Finishing up in my original major (Computer Engineering) was one of the best things I've done. good luck!

    Nice Patrick! It's worth it man... It sucks at the time, but in the end if you make the right connections and network correctly you can go far with a degree.

    Biochem is sweet. If you can do well in pharm school, pharm is pretty much 100% on job security.

    Is there no straight pharmacology major at your school?

    thankfully I already work for Walgreens pharmacy and have maxed out as a tech, so luckily I don't have to really apply again!

    Good for you. Pharmacist will be a good gig.At least you got it figured out relatively early. I am about to start my second semester after 10 years and it is a bit of an adjustment.
