    Okay so here is the breakdown.

    I am going to be finishing up school in about 10 months but have no idea where I want to go after school. I will be a pharmacist so any place will do (I mean everyone needs their drugs right?), but I am having trouble deciding on where I want to be when I am done. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or incite on what places would be really nice to be after school. I have my list on my profile but I feel that I am limiting myself. Any thoughts?

    Based on your list, I'd say Chicago.

    Have you considered Miami or L.A.? There are lots of old people in Florida who need their meds, lots of crazy people in L.A. who need meds... but both places have lots of hot people at the beaches and in modeling. Besides, the weather there is so much better than up in the northern part of the midwest.

    It will be helpful, if you can narrow the choices in terms of:

    (1) Do you like to live in the city or suburbs?
    (2) Are you an outdoors person or not?
    (3) Do you like cold weather or not?
    (4) What sort of activities do you like to do on the weekend?
    (5) Pharmacist salaries will vary depending on the region of the country, so check salary.com
    (6) Are you planning to rent, if so will you have a roommate or not- so you can decide on what budget to have?

    Just some ideas.

    Whatever you do, don't move to Nevada; Las Vegas or Reno are probably the two likely places there. The economy there goes up and down much worse than the rest of the US. And when it goes down it goes way down. The weather sucks and there's nothing whatsoever to do.

    If it's because of your career/job Houston it's a good option. My cousin's bf is a pharmacist and he works for the Texas Medical Center in Houston.

    I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area (East Bay) from the Midwest when I was about your age and have never regretted it. Have lived here ever since. But it isn't for everyone. It is expensive for one thing. It has its own social/cultural 'thing' that is difficult to explain but can be a lot of fun for a young person. You kind of either love it or hate it, though, it seems. The politics tend to be progressive. The weather is very mild most of the year (cool summers and warm winters all in all). Lots of 'out doorsey' stuff to do close by. Terrific summer hiking or winter skiing in the mountains, too, only a few hours away.

    Personally I didn't like Chicago at all but, of course, that was a LONG time ago. But can't imagine the winters have gotten much warmer or the summers much cooler!

    Good luck where ever you go!

    Like is the west coast hype worth it? I would love to move out there but would it be worth it?

    Islamorado or Marathon, Florida


    Halfway between Miami and Key West, so weekend or even weeknight trips are easy!

    Plus, Floridians are aging rapidly and have lots of $$$!

    Move to Columbus...you'll only be 3 hours away from me...LOL{joke}

    Matiz saidTierra del Fuego.


    You do realize he is a US citizen and took his training in US, right?

    Yes, he could get licensed there, but why?

    I've been to most places.... it seems that cities have their own flavor and culture. It would be difficult to make a suggestion without knowing you that well.

    Pharmacists make pretty good money. So your options are wide open. If you are a Democrat, a tad quirky, cool, outdoorsy, and have tolerance... I would recomend the Sugarhouse neighborhood in Salt Lake City.

    San Diego is great; however, everyone there comes here to hang out with the cool guys...

    So.... consider Utah... stay in Salt Lake City... maybe Foothill neighborhood... Good luck!

    Mumbai is lovely in the Spring and no license is necessary.

    You should check out these three great cities- Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo. All three of them have a booming medical sector with more major expansion on the way in all three cities. Don't let the demographic numbers about these cities scare you because it is not all decline and doom in either Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo. All three of these cities have a very affordable cost of living, great neighborhoods, friendly people, and a beautiful four season climate. Check them out.icon_biggrin.gif

    Calgary is in another country. He is looking in the US.

    Where did he say that?

    All I saw was this:
    PharmKY saidI will be a pharmacist so any place will do ...
    Moving into another country can be very costly and stressful. Since he was trained and licensed in the US, I am more than sure he prefers to stay in the US for the time being until he can build up some good cash reserves. When he said that anyplace would do, he most likely meant here in the US. I don't think he expected anyone to suggest that he move either to Calgary or to Tierra Del Fuego.

    It will still be good, but it won't be the same. The highway to Banff is still only half open.

    There are 2-3 weeks left before he leaves for Canada but he sure was bit worried.

    I've never heard anyone say anything but great stuff about San Diego. Except that it's expensive. I wouldn't worry about that if I was just starting out. Beaches, really beautiful men, good political environment, chill, close to Mexico and LA for travel, just great all round. Only negative might be the distance to Europe if that's something you'd like to do a lot.

    Very easy. New York City. This city has all you need to be happy and start your career. I think any gay person needs to be in or at least near a big city.
