    Your best bet would be to obtain a master's degree in either chemistry, biology or pharmacy, since they deal with drug discovery and administration. It's probably even better if you attend an Ivy League school, too, although that won't guarantee a job. Do some research and see if any of the large pharma companies have internship programs - these help students a lot when it comes to getting a job right out of college. Good luck... and study hard, they don't want average employees!!
