Odds of Getting In

Your odds of getting into the pharmacist biz are good. People keep getting older and sicker, and that's great news for you.

The fact that the role of "pharmacist" is expanding gives you many more options and opportunities to break into the field. Plus, a lot of money-minded individuals who put in that many years of medical school will opt to put their skills to financially better use by becoming a specialist or surgeon, leaving plenty of room open for you and your more "monastic" brethren.
