What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love MCPHS - planning on attending. Have visited twice and will visit again this weekend for accepted students weekend. Looking to see if I can also do a shadow a student day or a spend the night. Enjoy the atmosphere. At MCPHS, the building is historical and is actually very modern, but is built around the original historical building built in the 1800's I think. Love the combination or old and new and MCPHS truly represents that - old and new. They use old school values but provide the students with state of the art labs and equipment, as well as lecture halls with the latest technology, in order to be successful. The lecture halls also allow for the teachers to audiotape their lectures and the students can go back and re-listen to them. The professors eager to answer questions and help in any way. Professors are here to help is what was told to us and they are very accessible. What I liked best was that we were told that MCPHS is a teaching college and they want the students to come, ask questions and be successful. MCPHS also provides tutoring services and will do all they can to help the students there be as successful as possible. The students on campus are always helpful and willing to answer questions. The tours that the school provides are extremely helpful and you can always ask questions in a friendly and non-judgemental environment. You can tour a variety of dorms, the surrounding area on a trolley and local museums too. Dorms are shared with other Fenway 5 schools (Mass Art/Emmanuel/Wentworth/Simmons).You have the opportunity to eat in many dining halls and take classes at other Fenway 5 schools if you have electives available. Boston's Museum of Fine Arts is a 5-minute walk and there is a small museum right around the corner. Transportation is easy and right across the street from the University. This makes access to all Boston offers just a hop on and hop off. Copley is 4 stops away on the T, the Prudential Building is 3 stops and the North End is a short 4-5 stop trip on the Green Line. Great city and local vibe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe there's little to none positive intent regarding faculty towards their students and their overall wellbeing. It's extremely difficult to be able to find a professor or faculty member who truly cares about how their students are doing, I've been extremely lucky to have found about 3-4 in my career at MCP thus far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are big lecture halls for the big classes that everyone needs to take (anatomy, chemistry, microbiology, etc.) but other classes contain approx. 30 people. The carpets are gross, and there are plenty of privileged students who could care less about cleaning up after themselves. The school has a "wet policy," indicating that there is no alcohol allowed on campus, which could lead to expulsion. There is no housing available for students after their freshman year, due to the fact that it is a smaller school in Boston (there is no space for us). Most students live in Mission Hills or Roxbury because it is close by and inexpensive (that means dangerous, small, and dirty). However, this is a fantastic school, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. It offers a bachelor's degree for Dental Hygiene majors, which only takes three years. However, it is hard to find nice and wholesome friends here. Overall, it is a good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have visited the campus one time. This is my dream school! When I became interested in the college I emailed the admissions office and they got back to me in one day and also answered all my questions without making me feel like a pain. The staff is accommodating and reassuring about any doubts or questions an individual may have. would 10/10 recommend this for anyone looking to go into the health field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not great. The school is not very clean. There are mice all over the school. The school is rather expensive but the facilities are very very poor. Very minimal study spaces. Staplers are a rare commodity in the school. Few printers around the school and there is usually a long line in front of printers. Printers also print very slow. We timed 3 printers that would print out one sheet every 12 seconds. This made printing 45 page lecture packets very tedious. Not a great school. Not worth the education or price tag.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that MCPHS is the perfect place for people who put their academics first. The Professors care that you learn the material and they are always willing to help. If you are looking for a more traditional college experience filled with going to sports games and doing tons of extracurricular activities, this is probably not the place for you. The building is kinda small for the amount of students that attend the school which sucks and they do not offer housing for non-Freshman so you either have to get your own apartment(which the school does not help you find), commute from home, or take a chance in the lottery for housing which is not guaranteed and you will end up living with freshman.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are many pathways this school provide that many schools don’t so that is a huge benefit. We have pathways for students going into pharmacy or students going into physician assistant. It is nice to have a pathway so you know what class you’re taking and in the end you know what you’ll gain from this.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion for Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is that it is a terrific school. If you know that you want to be in the medical field and always be involved in science, then this is the school for you. This school has a bunch to offer and there are many ways to get help with your academics. The professors have office hours that are easy to attend and extra problem sessions. Along with this, tutoring one on one or in big groups are available and there are tutoring centers for different classes. With all these opportunities to help get your grades up and stay on tract, MCPHS University is an amazing school to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MCPHS University was my top choice because of how focused students are on their academics. Living in such a big city, there are always extracurricular activites and places to visit, but the class sizes are small enough where you feel like your professor truly care about your individual success.
