(Med center is top 100 US Cardiac Hosp!) It is very up to date electronically AND there is a "mock" pharmacy setup from the early 1900's that was donated to the school, very cool" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Winchester is VERY small it's located near Roanoke/DC and several state lines, but it is rural and since I'm from a city it's a little daunting not to really have anything modern to look at in the city. Cost of living looks good though so it shouldn't be hard to afford an appartment there. I don't like school that force you to get a laptop when you go in but it's part of your tuition. The staff is very friendly, you get the entire school tour in about 10 mins, might not impress most people but the quality and level of modernism in their facilities is outstanding for a small school. Be aware thet the school is VERY serious about their honor code and ethics, prepare for questions on ethics such as "what would you do if you came to work and a pharmacist you worked with took a valium every day without a prescription" (not my question, I overheard another student as they talked with the receptionist) DO NOT say you'll let him/her keep taking it!"
