MCPHS is a good allied health sciences school that focuses on health science majors. They have good health-related programs like radiology, sonography, and an accelerated pharmacy program. They are also located in the Longwood area which has many health facilities around it like Boston children's hospital and Brigham and women which present a good opportunity for students.
I would never choose to go here if I had to do it again. MCPHS only cares about its students as profits; and the results of this are seen at every level of the school. There are not sufficient staff or offices (no nurse's office, no cafeteria, very badly staffed tech office, etc.). The academic program was so poorly planned, which caused excessive stress for students. The staff and faculty are unhelpful and lack basic humanity, if you can even contact them. I do not recommend MCPHS.
I like going to school in Boston, I don't believe my university is the best one out there among others however it has what other universities offer. It is what you make of it as a student. Opportunities are there but one must be very goal oriented to make these chances into actualities.
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.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for MCPHS University is 84%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself how important it is to keep your focus and not give up. I would also push myself to better prepare for my future so that I wouldn't have to go through what I am going through now in trying to go to college. I would encourage myself to apply for grants and scholarships before it was too late and I halted my education even more, which is what I have done. I'd encourage myself to think and make decisions clearly in order to better prepare myself to be a college student at a younger age than I am.
My classmates are hard working, career based, and since we go to a medical school they want to help people.
My school feels more like a hospital rather than a college. Because it is mjostly a graduate school my school is very intimate and not very big.
A small campus that is easy to figure out, friendly upperclassmen that are very helpful, and excellent academic advisors/conselors for anyone who needs one on one advice.
The best thing about MCPHS is the faculty that offer their best to the students and the school. They try to get the best out of their students in order for them to be responsible and affective at their jobs.
I attended Worcester campus. This campus houses grad and second degree students, everyone is an adult. So there's no true college spirit. Everyone is busy studying. Nursing program, though prepares high quality graduates, is very demanding, and do not expect respect from your professors. They treat you like a fifth-grader.
Our school is best known for the 0-6 pharmd program this means that students are accepted into the pharmd program directly from high schoolspend two years compeleting the undergrad requriments and move into the graduate program as third year students if they have a 2.7 gpa. Then students complelete thefour year graduate portion and go on to be pharmasists
I brag about how professional my school is and how my professors are incredibly intelligent and really know their material.
The worst thing about the school would be the lack of fun opportunities for commuting students. Most of the activities held at the school are at night, 6PM or later, when a lot of the commuters are home or heading home.
The financial aid conselors give you the run around, they seem to not want to give you the maximum amount of financial aid that you can get.
If you are looking for a good education in the health field and looking for a good, fun, and learning activities then this is a good school to attend.
Somebody who enjoys partying a lot shouldn't attend this school. It is very small and strict, defintiley not a party atmosphere. Also someone who isn't very focused on their future should not attend MCPHS, it is very focused on the health care professions.
Due to the small atmosphere in the Nursing department, all of the professors, administrative assistant, as well as the clinical coordinator. Students can be competitive in the beginning, but quickly learn that each student needs each other for support and guidance to be successful.
The best thing about MCPHS is the tight-nit community with fellow classmates and the professors. The school is rather small, but has a great learning environment. Most of my time on campus was spent in the basement where you can eat, hang out, or play games. The library is also a place where a lot of time is spent studying for the exams or doing an assignment. There is definitely a lot of school pride that can be shown by everyone who attends as well as all of the family and friends that are associated with and supporting the MCPHS students. The most frequent student complaints are the very expensive tuition bill, required to purchase textbooks that may never be used for a class.
