Destiny - 06/05/2024

As someone committed to health sciences, I find MCPHS University ideal. With programs in pharmacy, nursing, dental hygiene, and more, MCPHS offers comprehensive, hands-on education. Its Boston location provides access to top healthcare facilities, aiding internships and job placements. Despite high tuition and demanding programs, MCPHS’s robust healthcare training and strong career outcomes make it worth the commitment.

Redeat - 11/26/2021

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.

Brooke - 06/14/2021

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.

Sophia - 03/26/2020

MCPHS is one of the best colleges out there. they make me feel accepted as a person they dont look at me like im a freak because of my 504 plan they make me feel welcomed its one of the best feelings in the world and I hope people feel the same as i do.

    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.

  7. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    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.

  15. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    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.
