    Getting harder for pharmacists to find work

    Post by Doc on Sun Apr 10, 2011 9:11 pm

    The pharmacy industry was BOOMING around the year 2008 and there were many great job opportunities, which is mainly why I went into the field, but as of late, pharmacists are having trouble finding work and of course this would happen because I decided to go into pharmacy Rolling Eyes

    You guys think things will change again by the time me and Ahmed are done? 4 more years for me and 6 for him

    I think it'll improve. The economy always has recession, then it fixes itself.

    BTW pharmacy is evolving so the job will expand further.

    Those are made to scare you from becoming a Pharmacist. BTW the economy is in recovery.

    lol never believe SDN, for pharmacy anyway, they act as if you need a PCAT composite over 80 and a GPA around or higher than 3.5 Rolling Eyes

    well every school is different but realistically you can get in with a 50-60 PCAT composite and like a 3.2-3.3 GPA ... ive heard as low as 3.0 sometimes ... the point is that you don't NEED those kind of stats ...
