"ACPHS was a very small, specialized school. With small classes, the students were able to get a lot of one on one time with professors. The atmosphere of the college was very pleasant."

"Degree mill. Despite being such a small school, I was just a number. It is possible to have a great experience here, but you really have to push for it, to make it into the "president's circle of friends". If you cut your way into the student government you will be fine and receive special treatment. Otherwise you really have to fend for yourself. I graduated, I made it out barely alive, and I would NEVER go through it again. Pharmacy isn't worth it anymore. The job markets are becoming saturated. Pursue your passions instead. Don't just become a pharmacist because of the money or because its "easier" than medical school (its not). But, yes. For what it is worth, the academic program prepares you well enough for clinical pharmacy."

"Despite being a small school, you are just a number. The curriculum expectations are unrealistic, but students keep pushing themselves to the breaking point just to finish"

"Pros: The area is beautiful, there is easy accessibility to professors and faculty (most are very friendly and approachable). In addition everyone on campus is undergoing the sam program. Cons: The campus itself is very isolated. A car is the ultimate method of transportation, and some of the classes don't seem to directly describe a career in pharmacy."

"Pros: It is a small sized program therefore it provides the students the chance to interact closely with the professors and the peers. I think this definitely helps the learning process tremendously. Cons: All the class schedules are pre-determined for the students. Although it is a grad school it almost feels like high school because the students can't choose what classes they want to take or what time in the day they can take it."
