    I've had a couple friends who are at/went to MCP for pharmacy. They all seem to be kept pretty busy most of the time but what college student isn't? Located in a great area surrounded by medical and educational institutions. Harvard Med, Beth Israel, Children's Hospital, Merck, Boston Latin (my HS alma mater). MCP sits right next to Northeastern and Wentworth and not too far from Berkeley College of Music. And isn't too far from Copley area. I would say campus experience is probably pretty great since its surrounded by busy atmosphere and accessible going into the city. Can't speak to the academic programs though.

    So what are you to apply for in MCPHS? Pharmacy, Dentistry, Pre-Med, Psychology, Radiologic Sciences, Nursing, ect?

    All programs are different from each other, obviously. MPCHS is actually not a normal University. Biggest difference, is the length of time to get degrees. The second you step foot in the door you are studying, there are no parties, no college life, in all honesty.

    If you are going for Pharmacy it will take you 6 years to graduate and a minimum. The biggest advantage in going to MCPHS Pharmacy program, is that you will not have to take the PCATs. Once you get into Pharmacy program you are 100% guaranteed a spot in the program. The catch is, that every year you need to maintain a certain GPA (and it gets higher for every year). They will not hesitate to kick anyone out. The professors are hard but you will learn.

    Also another advantage is that MPCHS is part of the College of Fenway, so you can take classes at Wentworth, Simmons, Emmanuel, and 3 others I cant remember.

    I loved MCPHS, but I did not go for Pharmacy, I went for Radiological Sciences that specialized in Radiation Therapy. (All majors have different specializations you will have to choose).

    Again MCPHS is not an ordinary University. It is EXPENSIVE and you WILL NEED TO STUDY. But if you graduate, you deserved it!

    Also it is no longer MCPHS but MCPHSU

    Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences University

    (This is the first year for the new name) icon_biggrin.gif

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.
