"I don’t recommend ppl to go here unless you have no other options. Cons -The school staffs are uncaring (ex.: the dean herself) when you go to them w a concern. They laugh at you, pretend they care and push you aside. -The curriculum is not the best. Makes you take the same class you took as an undergrad without letting you skip it -Makes students waste time and money by having you pay to volunteer around the neighborhood to gain “experience” interacting w ppl instead of allowing ppl to study during that time -The instructors aren’t helpful when you ask them for help, like that public health professor w an attitude. She needs a full evaluation of her before treating students nastily when we are paying for their salary -The neighborhood around the campus is not safe. A lot of drug addicts tends to hang around|lots of homeless ppl are found in the park -Nothing walking distance -Club activities or events, they barely serve enough food for the students Pro -I’m not sure if there are any pros for this school"

"Horrible experience. They want you to be perfect. A tiny mistake will harm your grade significantly, while at the same time, the professors themselves can't hold the standard. Curriculum is not well designed. They rush you through the metrical without real time to learn stuff. Exams are designed on test your short term memory rather than understanding. Some professors are harsh and not caring. There is no supporting system in the program meaning the professors can do whatever they want and the students don't have a say. I DO NOT recommend this program to anyone."

"Students are only worth profits at MCPHS. The staff and faculty treat you accordingly. It's a very corporate experience, wherein the staff/professors are inhumane and disrespectful to students, and the curriculum is poorly planned causing students immense stress. Do not recommend at all."

"MCPHS is a specific kind of institution. The staff is by far the most caring, personable group. Its difficult but its worth it. I have yet to graduate but Im looking forward to it. If you love healthcare so much that your'e willing to study as much as you can come on over. The classes are incredibly in depth and its easy to make study groups. Coffee in the commuter lounge and study space. Good luck, happy studying."

"Where I was before compare to now? I believe I made the right decision to come here. I left my career, house, and people I was comfortable with to a place where I can expand my knowledge and met new people along the way. The professors at MCPHS-Manchester are the best. They will help you when you are in need. One word to describe this place "family "."

"I am currently enrolled in the Pharmacy program, I am in my third year of the doctorate program which means I am considered a graduate student. The reason why I am attending MCPHS is because I loved the school since I walked in. In such a big city, the school is a small community of friends, teachers and advisors. During my two years here, I have been working at the Center for Academic Success and Enrichment which helps students with classes, study tips and tutoring. I have learned more about friendship, teamwork, dedication and persistence in these two years and I wouldn't trade it for the world. MCPHS helps students achieve their goals and determine exactly what career path they want to go into. Without my teachers and advisors I still wouldn't know what my passion is."

"It is an awesome program, with lots of assignments to do and test to study but at the end of the day it is worth it."
