best decision of my life

school is easy you just have to be a great at time management. The hardest part is just getting in. Don't go to a brand new school. Go to one at least a couple of decades old.

My salary doubles almost anything you can do at a trade school..

higher your degree is = higher your min pay scale can be.

bachelor = 35-55k
masters= 50-65k
doctoral degree = 60+

You said school was easy but i looked into it before and people was talking about classes days a week and between classes and studying was consuming about 5-10 hours a day. Just curious because i thought about it a few years ago but just wouldn't have had time with a family and work

My pops said getting the degree was the hardest 8 years of his life, but well worth it. Now he hops out of his Benz and walks into a pharmacy that he owns everyday

school is easy based on the information you have to learn...If you have great memorization you will do fine. in pharmacy we have to know damn near a million things but they are very simple things..no physics formulas or stuff like engineers have to learn.

what you are referring to is the biggest problem which i explain earlier...time management

grind 6-8 years of your life to live great for the next 25-30

there are times when i go grocery shopping..go to the mall...get home.. watch tv and think "how much did i spend today?

oh no i feel you and agree..it's def worth the sacrifice just when i was looking into it (still the same today) it's not really possible. I Have a family and just don't see how it would be possible without working part time or something and that wouldn't pay the bills

A real good friend of mine went to UCONN for this and she makes BANK. But UCONN is also mad expensive to be going to school there. But I guess its like any school you know. The student loan will always be there.

I know carpenters making 250k+ a year profit running their own business.

A product or a service in this case trade school with good marketing will always win. Plus the dude running his own business does not have to answer to anyone or put up some dumb white robe and show up to work in Walgreens.

who cares about a high salary if at the end of the day you are still a slave who's dependent on on a platform (the pharmacy) to make money.

The man who can create money outlasts the one who can only make it.

2-3 full days 8-3 and one 2 hr lab other days..but with studying and other group projects its really M-F 9-3 ish (unless you have late tests)

i worked 20-30 hrs..went out every other weekend(single and no kids)..do what you have to do. I even applied for food stamps but as a pharmacy intern my hr wage was to high

the nurse she worked 10 hrs shifts sat and sun to make it through....

if you want something go get it...
