Maybe crazy is exaggerating it, but man it feels like it to me. So I am about to begin my third year of college, and I have decided to change my major from Public Relations to Pre-Pharmacy. I have always loved the idea, but put down the idea that I could do the science, even though I’m good in school. I have a 3.9 GPA, so surely I can handle it.
But it’s scary! I mean, now I have an extra 4 years for med school that I would have to go to! I was planning on going to grad school anyway, but now my whole plan is changing.
Also, with this change, it will most likely change my wedding date, not back but FORWARD. With comm classes, missing a week for a honeymoon isn’t a big deal, but I can’t miss science labs, so summer break it is. Because I am sure not waiting for 6 years to get married.
EEEEE.. Just wanted to get that out there. Advice? Words of encouragement? Any other pharmacists out there? Did you want to die from all the schooling?

I totally overlooked the college category. This is where it belongs. *sigh* I am horrible at categorizing sometimes.

Change is good! You are not alone with changing majors, even at the worst time! I had 4 different majors, and it was all part of the journey!
I don’t have any pharmacy experience per se but I did go to a school with a pharm school had many friends succeed! It is hard work, but there are tons of study groups, materials and support! You can do it!

Good luck! I think that’s a much better major (and I was a comm major :-p). What month will your wedding and honeymoon be?

I am going to give you some reassurance! I am a grad school advisor and MANY of my students (who are in a very intense science program at a very prestigious school) do get married. My opinion is that they prefer to get married in their first year of the two year program because it is less stress. If this is what you want, you’re totally capable of doing it! Go get it, girl!

@ohmybears48: Oh this is SO good to hear.
@redheadem: It’ll probably me moved to June. Luckily I don’t live in a huge place where dates are booked years in advance.
