Pharmacy school isn't ridiculous; in fact, my wife has gone back to school for a Pharm.D. The potential money is decent, the field is growing, and the competition is relatively small because you used to be able to become a pharmacist with a bachelor's and you now need a Pharm.D. That's also a downside, because it takes longer. However, if you have other skills/degrees, you'll have many opportunities beyond simply being a staff pharmacist at your local Rexall.

So, it all comes back to whether the field interests you.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. I'm terrible at math and haven't had any trouble.

I work as a salesman currently, how does that help me if I have a political science degree. Just curious, cuz I'm REALLY good at it. I guess if I go to law school, that'll be good. sorry for hijack, lmao I think you should do economics, magician. I actually use to major in it, as it was my passion. However, I dropped out of the school I went to (GMU) because I realized I didn't like the research aspect of economics. I think its a good route to take, though.
