Online pharmacy school then part-time pharmacy work (if you can find it.)

If you work as a pharm tech, your job might offer tuition reimbursement for part time school. My friend got her pharmacy degree that way.

When I graduated from university there was ppl over 65 years old graduating. I remember a granny (probably over 60y.o.) in my psychology class sitting next to me. She kept asking me questions.

Full time job, all the way — become a waitress or bartender …
College is a hassle and a gamble …
