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)
Let me know if you have anymore questions.
