Having a “Goal” School Rather than a “Dream” School

USC_Trojans5

We all have heard it before. “What is your dream school?” “What is the dream school that you wish to attend?” For a college student, and even for the high school senior, it is a term thrown around all too often.

It is a common misconception when a pre-pharmacy student says that he or she does not require any humanities and social science courses, or that mathematics is of no use for a Pharmacist.

Sure, Edison might have succeeded with his light bulb here, but how many failures did he run across?
