That is a good option but is not my driving motivation. The only reason I was able to stay focused and make good grades was the hope of one day getting into medical school. Everybody has the ability to do there best but there best may not be as good as another persons best. I have always done my best and I strive to achieve the best. To go into something like masters or Ph.d would be like lowering myself to do something I have no desire to do. I would feel like the med student who couldnt get into medical school so went to nursing school.

I have gotten a job offer as an environment quality scientist position and as a pharmacy tech manager. I thought others may want to know to look into them.

The pharmacy tech is low pay. I live in mississippi and the minimum wage is a little over 6.50/hr and the pharm tech certified and with bs degree was 7.40 and I knew the lady in-charge of pay and she even maxed out the pay and it came to a whopping 8.50/hr and no benefits included. So no way is that even feasible. I am going to do the Env. Quality job and it starts low for a bs degree but better than anything else at the time. About 28k a year.
