Am I too old to begin pharmacy school?

Question: At the age of 27/28, do you think I'm too old to be going on this endeavor? Do you think there will be an affect on my ability to handle the work of pharmacy school?

Answer: I know many students much older than you who have successfully completed pharmacy school.  In fact, I know many professors (and AdComs) prefer mature students because we have found that they often have a greater focus on their professional studies. Whether you can handle jumping back into a rigorous program after not having taken any courses for several years is something I cannot answer for you, but with diligent preparation and commitment, I believe that most students will be successful.

I wish you the best and encourage you to pursue your dreams.

Thanks, I really needed this. I just finished taking the PCAT and got a preliminary score of 88 so I'm feeling hopeful!
