    @Sayf: is it also a coincidence that most people are stupid?

    True...I would actually support on retail chain...but then many people would lose their jobs.

    thats not always the case

    but dentistry is still the best IMO

    first of all, you don't need a crazy 3.8 GPA or anything to be accepted ... in fact you can get actually in with a 3.3 even ... and the DAT seems like a more reasonable test than the retarded PCAT ... also you can earn twice as much as a pharmacist while getting in with around the same GPA ... you're given nearly MD level of respect and are not owned by retail companies

    A big part of the blame actually falls on MDs and not the retail stores.

    The reason doctors disagree with pharmacists prescribing is NOT because they are concerned for patient safety. It is because of POWER and their fear of losing their prescriptive monopoly. The status quo is changing and pharmacist have displayed in numerous practice settings such as the VA that they CAN prescribe drugs both safely and effectively! Pharmacists are already allowed to prescribe in other countries such as the UK with great success. The one track mind that only a "doctor" can magically write scripts effectively is nonsense. You cannot tell me that a pharmacist is not capable of prescribing Allegra for seasonal allergies or nystatin for oral thrush for example. Yes, there needs to be limitations, but many meds that are Rx only do not necessarily need a doctor visit to treat.

    It's true. MDs fear of the idea of losing money and power.

    As for retail stores, while they seem to degrade Pharmacists, they don't force you to work for them. Rather they open job opportunities and it is the Pharmacists who choose to work for them, most likely because they don't have enough money to open their own.
