Is chemistry a good major?
I'm going to be a freshman at Towson University and plan on majoring in Chemistry. My goal is to gain admittance into a pharmacy school between the end of sophomore year and finishing my BS.
My questions are:
1.) Is the BS in Chemistry the best choice for pharmacy, or should I major in something else. I know that it doesn't matter what you major in, as long as you take the pre-reqs. I just want to look competitive and have a good major.
2.) If I do not get into pharmacy school right after graduation, does a BS in Chemistry have more career opportunities and higher salary compared to other sciences like bio, biochem, molec. bio, etc.? ( I know that I would probably need to get a MS if I do not pursue Pharmacy) I wan't to be safe in terms or jobs if I do not pursue Pharmacy.
3.) How hard is a Chemistry major compared to other sciences, and is it worth it?
Sorry if the questions are opinionated and unclear; I'm just kind of nervous for my future. :/
Please give any other tips and ideas that may help me out and give me insight. Thanks everyone!
