Hey Kristian,

Tips on selecting a good college include:

1) Research the schools that you are considering

2) Check the Accreditation, Admission and Completion Rates, Tuition and Fees and Admissions Requirements

3) Check the reports on the school - nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/

4) Speak with Alumni to hear their experience

5) Audit a class to see if you like the classroom environment and instruction

Hope that helps

Hi Kristian,
Many colleges will offer many of the same classes that you will need to apply to any pharmacy/medical school, like biology, chemistry, physics, etc. I would research what colleges offer experiences that will really immerse you in the field that you're interested in. For example, if you are interested in medicine, are there multiple medical centers/hospitals that can give you the experience and resources you need, such as clinical volunteering/shadowing? Does the college offer good resources for prepharm/premed students outside of classes, like advisors or student organizations? These are factors that you might want to consider, in addition to standard things like tuition cost and location. Good luck!

Hi Kristian!

I do agree with Anthony's response above - definitely research the schools that either offer pharmacy as a degree (Pharm.D.) or offer a great B.S. program to get into pharmacy school. You do not need an undergraduate degree for pharmacy school just the required credits (90-100 credits). The good thing for both of the career paths you are interested in - you can seek pre-med/pre-pharmacy as a major and you are taking the same classes pretty much so thats good.
