What do you like most?

"The faculty is as good as it gets, with few exceptions. I felt prepared for boards and the real world of pharmacy. There was a lot of pressure and classes were not easy, but I professors were always there when I needed help (don't be scared of T.Mac, he's a great teacher and loves students who come ask questions). It's the best program in Illinois or Missouri if you want to feel comfortable and learn without a culture of teaching that seeks to fail students intentionally and/or foster an overly competitive and toxic environment. I was in the 2nd quartile in terms of grades, but pharmacists I work with regularly compliment my clinical knowledge. I wasn't the best student, but I learned a lot and I've retained a good deal because the instructors were excellent. 119 on the Naplex." | Report Response

What do you like least?

"I think this may have changed since I was there (2015), but I don't think medicinal chemistry should be part of the integrated therapeutics course. Pharmacology blends well with the practical side of pharmacy, but medicinal chemistry was often neglected by students due to it being heavy material and counting as a small portion of exams. It would be better taught as a parallel course with separate testing or as a single course during P1 year. I liked Med Chem, mostly, but in a pinch it was the last thing I worried about studying. This is a small issue, however, unless you plan to go into research. I think they've changed how this is structured to address this issue anyway." | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
