"From previous visits to the school, I found that the library is TRULY very small; mostly just some computers. Also, seems like this school is definitely not for every type of person. They also gave me the impression that they are crystal clear as to what type of students they are looking for, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. Also, there didn't appear to be laboratory research opportunities, like the other school I visited had. So if you're later looking to go into industry, you might want to look elsewhere. However, they do seem to be very community-minded. So if you're looking to work in a community pharmacy after graduation, then this place seems like a good fit for you. The dorms looked pretty nice, but expensive. Unfortunately, they do not offer a meal plan or have a dining hall. Overall, a good school. But I have to agree with everyone else in saying that the location absolutely sucks. Right in the middle of downtown Worcester with apprently not much to do in the actual school (don't know about the city though). " More from this Member | Report Response

"Be sure to be able to state why you want to go into pharmacy and what makes you able to pursue an accelerated program. The program is not for the faint of heart. 70-80% of students end of graduating. My impression of those students that didn't complete the program were not fully equipped to take on a fast pace program. However, if you do complete the program, the school has a 97% first-pass rate for the NAPLEX. I spoke with a P3 and P2 at the school during my tour, and they both said that the biggest complaint among students is everything that the school demands of its students to know. They feel that it's over the top. However, when they talked to former students that took the NAPLEX, they realized the program had prepared them a lot more than other programs. Be prepared to give up 3 years of your life." More from this Member | Report Response

"Thirty minutes for a writing sample (choose one from a list of general topics, if you want to prep for this, pondering some current issues and significant life experiences can help, but nothing difficult to answer), then your interview with a faculty member, a tour (the tour may come before the interview depending on when you are scheduled), and finally a brief meeting with an Admissions Director to go over anything important about your application and for extra questions. Have an idea of what to say for any sort of blemish big or small on your application, just so you're not caught off-guard. They don't care if you have experience or not: just be convincing (knowledgeable and enthusiastic) that pharmacy and MCPHS is something you want. Think of questions for them, too, and don't be shy about asking them during the interview. Really, everything you need to know about the interview you can find right here. Great experience and time goes by in a flash :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I actually interviewed for the Manchester, NH campus, but it wasn't a choice on the schools to leave feedback for. I arrived about 30 minutes early and was taken up to complete the 30 minute writing sample, then the admissions lady came back to get me and introduce me to my interviewer. The writing sample is simple, you have a choice of 10 topics to write 1 page about and it's basically to see how you write when you don't have months to edit and revise like on the PharmCAS essay. I had been told that if theygive you a tour you're in, well I got thrown off because my interviewer gave me the tour of the facilities first then we went to her office for the interview. She showed me where the first and second year students classrooms are and took me in to sit in on a class for a few minutes. Watching lectures on he monitors being broadcast from Worcester, MA is really not bad; you can press a button and be put through to ask the professor a question or answer a question. She also told me that if you have a question for a professor outside of class you don't have to use email, they actually have webcams so you can talk to the professor live if you would like to. When we went down to her office she actually said she has a bit of an unorthodox way of interviewing, she had my file closed in front of her but said that she doesn't read them until after you've gone because otherwise she feels that she knows everything about you and doesn't need to ask you any questions. She also said she can look through the file then if I wanted. So she said "tell me about yourself and why you want to go into pharmacy?!" So I did and then she really shocked me and as her second question asked if I had any questions. (Absolutely ask questions everyone, this is their way of seeing your enthusiasm of wanting to attend their institution) I asked he the same question she asked me about why pharmacy and she seemed really happy with this question. We basically just talked for an hour and she looked at the clock and said "Oh wow, I have a class to teach that supposed to start now" So she walked me out and I thanked her and was off to my car. I walked out in a bit of a daze because i wasn't expecting it to be so laid back, I thought it went very well, but as anyone who has a brain would say they think of great things to ask after the fact. My advice to anyone is to relax and take it easy. I had the same mindset that a lot of people do, I'm not going to think it went well or not, I'm just going to check the mailbox everyday and take it from there. I'm happy to say that on day 7, I had a folder instead of an envelope in my mailbox." More from this Member | Report Response

"First and foremost, if you have an interview with MCP-Worcester coming up, don't sweat it because the people there are all extremely friendly! They aren't there to see you fail, so just do your best by being yourself. I arrived at the 25 Foster St building 45 minutes before my scheduled interview time. Five minutes later, I was brought into the main office and told that the writing portion of my interview day was going to commence. There were ten essay prompts, and you pick one to answer in one page or less. Personally I thought this was more than enough room because 30 minutes was just way too little time. Impromptu writing is not my strength either, so this was definitely the weakest part of my interview day. My best advice here is to browse through the topics quickly and to start cranking out that writing! After the 30 minutes were up, I came out of the room and walked back out to the main office. I think someone was supposed to come bring me out, but 30 minutes did pass and so I just walked out on my own and gave my essay to the lady at the front desk. The interview including the tour of the campus commenced as my interviewer and I gave our brief introductions. She then began by asking how my flight was and where I was staying at. Because this was the first one-on-one interview of my life, the interview being friendly and conversational really helped. The fact that it stayed conversational throughout the whole 45 minutes was also more than what I could ask for :) I used the tour as my opportunity to ask almost all of my questions. In fact, the interviewer spoke so much more than I did, and was very nice and honest about everything too. After seeing the apartment-style housing (which by the way smelled really nice) and walking around everywhere in the cozy campus, the last stop of my tour ended at the interviewer's office. Here, she asked me the one *real* interview question, which was: ''Why pharmacy? What brought you to this career?'' To be honest, this has been the most difficult interview question for me to answer during my preparations, so if you have problems answering this one, it's okay because you're not alone! Strangely enough, my answer during the interview COMPLETELY blew myself away, as it came out all naturally and fluently (and I SO wish I could remember what I said!). I could tell my interviewer liked my response also, because after I finished, she even went into why SHE pursued a PharmD! Anyways, after this whole craziness, my interviewer began to emphasize the stress and workload at the school, but also that there are ample student services offered for anyone who wishes to obtain help. She also showed me the Pharmacotherapeutics book, telling me that by the P2 year, students must be more mature and professional in terms of self-learning, and to not expect to be spoon-fed everything. The bottom line is that the professor is there, but ultimately it is up to the students to put in what they want to get out. Because MCP-Worcester is accelerated, therapeutics, stress, and the intense curriculum and student attrition were the center of focus for a good 15 minutes or so. I did say one thing that I believe the interviewer liked a lot, and that was that the program is ''accelerated, not abbreviated.'' There are no shortcuts or anything, just brute motivation and determination to get through a tough program and to become the very best pharmacist you can be. After all, we are in this to serve patients and health professionals in the future, so why not push ourselves for a few years and live the rest of our lives knowing that we can? All in all, I had a wonderful time. I gave it my very best, and was officially accepted four days later on December 4. Hope this helped, and I wish you luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived at the interview about 45 minutes early and Kate offered to let me write my essay first. You choose from 9 different prompts relating to various topics and you have 30 minutes to write. After writing, I met my interviewer, who is a professor at the school. She asked me the usual, why MCPHS? and why pharmacy? Then we got into a discussion about my research and clincal experiences as an MT. She asked me why I didn't want to be an MT anymore and how would I handle the 3 year program. After the interview, she took me on a 30 minute tour. I could not have felt more at home. " More from this Member | Report Response

Also heard and 25% of students do not graduate at worchestser, drop out or dismissed. In Boston campus, only 70% passing.

They don't have student activities and services. I was also told the school is not organized and that professors are not available for office hours and that students have to go through heck of getting help during office hours. I was also told that some students actually experienced nervous breakdowns b/c of the amount of work given.

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The only thing I would add to make the interview day more thorough will be to include a financial aid session and then a Q&A session with current students. This way, the applicant will have a feel of the school from a student's perspective and also know more about the financial aid situation for the program. Other than that, I think the interview was very organized and efficient." More from this Member | Report Response
