Best pathway to an eventual PharmD?
Hello! So my ultimate goal is to earn a PharmD and become a pharmacist but in terms of schools, I'm not totally sure what to do. I was accepted into UOP's pre-pharmacy program (and i'm being offered 20k in scholarships) but I also applied to UC San Diego, Davis, LA and Irvine since my teacher says they have medical schools that I can later apply to. Also applied to USC and their TAP program, but the reality is that these schools are hard to get into and to be frank, gambling losses made my EFC really high and I will probably make me unable to reasonably afford going to these colleges. Is there any way that I can take a community college route, where I do most of my pre-reqs and then transfer later on to earn my degree at a UC and THEN go into a graduate school or should I try to go directly and deal with the high EFC my first year (since my second year, my income will drop). Sorry if this is all very confusing. Thank you for your help!
