View Full Version : In Need of Direction

07-21-2010, 01:10 PM
I'm currently a senior in high school and up until now I have always thought that I wanted to become a pharmacist. My original plan was to go to a four-year university and earn a degree in chemistry and pre-pharmacy. Then I planned to attend a pharmacy school and get my PharmD degree. I recently changed my mind and decided that I do not want to end up working behind a counter servicing people, but rather, I want to work more-so in research and development laboratory type setting.

I guess my question is: Is pharmacology a more suitable alternative? And if it is, exactly how to I reach my goal? Do I have to change my major? Do I still have to plan to attend a pharmacy school?

Im trying to search for a college now, and it is difficult to do since i dont know which direction to go. I dont know who else to ask, so any advice or guidance would be greatly appriciated. :)
