What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
