Whichever one you're most comfortable with and have an interest for.

You can get into professional-drug-dealer-school with ANY program.

Really depends on what you specialize in for life sci. Mac life sci is general in 1st year (everyone takes chem, bio, etc) and then you specialize in 2nd year to psych/biopsych/biology/chemistry/biochemistry/physics/molecular biology and genetics etc. If you specialize in physics or chemistry, it will be harder than health sci/kin. If you specialize in psych/biopsych, it will probably be easier than health sci/kin. Also depends on your strengths though, I am much stronger in bio than chem/physics, so I know personally I would have a harder time in physics/chem, but if you're good at physics/chem then maybe that's the route for you.

You can apply to pharm from any undergrad degree so long as you take the PCAT, fulfill prereqs etc. I think a chemistry degree would be most relevant though.

So you're saying Mac Health Sci does fill prereqs for Pharmacy school?

Ugh, I don't know whether I should apply to Mac Life Sci or not and the deadlines in 3 days!

I'm at this point where I picture myself in a corporate setting (business) as well as a pharmacist (science) so I applied to both business AND science programs.

What do I do?

I don't know what the prereqs to pharm are. But chances are you will have the space to take them as electives even if it's not a mandatory health sci course (you get 3 electives each in 1st and 2nd year, 6 electives in 3rd year, and 6-7 electives in 4th year) in health sci.
