What impressed you positively?

"Campus was nice, good location (close enough to Chicago to get all the benefits, but far enough that you don't deal with all the city headaches). Also, they set-up the class schedules such that there are specific exam days (ie- tests/exams can only fall on Tues/Thurs morning between 8-9:30AM and they are pre-arranged so there are no conflicts between classes). Very organized in that respect." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tour guide was in a huge rush because she had an exam right after she finished giving the tour. Should have given us a faculty member to do the tour instead." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Expensive, for one thing. Secondly, the first year is spent with the medical students in a few classes. So unlike many other pharm schools, there is very little one-on-one or personal time with the professors. It's like undergrad all over again. Lecture halls with upwards of 350 students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There is a group mentality in EVERYTHING they do at CCP. On day 1 you are assigned to a group of 8 people and that is your group for everything you do for the next 4 years. You guys will do labs, cases, and presentations together. While this can be a good thing if you get a good group, you might also get stuck with people you absolutely cannot get along with... and there are no divorces from these groups. Either you deal with it or you drop out. Not sure if I'm up for that." Report Response
