Congrats and good luck man. I have a lot of friends who are in the Pharmacy program at my school, which is a 6-year program, but they graduate with a PharmD from one of the best programs in the country. It'* a long and arduous road...while I had a group of exams three times a semester, they had exams every single week. Poor guys never got a break. But damn, Pharmacy girls are soooo foine (compared to engineering girls...wait, what'* an engineering girl?). They are in fact paid very well - I know of at least one person who is starting at $90k.
I started my freshman year as a computer science major, then switched to electrical engineering (most people do it the other way around). It was the hardest thing in my life. If I could do it all over again, I would probably pick mechanical or ceramic engineering instead. When I go to grad school, it sure as heck won't be for EE.
