"I would highly consider avoid applying for this program. Instructors do not really teach the material, they are reading off the slides and their lecture does not make sense. The study content is not specific and there is so many vagueness to study. If you attend this PA program, be prepared to study from the class book, USMLE book, watch youtube videos + (instructor power point slides that are useless in regard to how they prepare you as a future provider). Lecture time is useless and waste of time. PA school is stressful but without guidance its crazy. Their curriculum each semester is made of 7 or 8 classes and like 3 or 4 of them basically are electives. The 4 main faculty members are really nice tho but i feel like its useless in regard to your preparedness as a future PA that will be taking care of patient and need the didactic and clinical knowledge to be ready."

"Pfeiffer University is a tiny school about a hour outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. While North Carolina has a number of larger, and more well-known institutions, Pfeiffer has a very well connected Religion department. Classroom are small, with an average of about 15 student. This help creates a warm learning environment, which allows for better connections with staff and faculty. Compared to other university, I was able to eat meals with staff and faculty regularly, allowing to build connections throughout my four years at Pfeiffer. While having the small campus may have some downsides, Pfeiffer definitely plays more into the positives of being connected and networked."

"It was a small school, and I transferred there from a larger university. Small colleges have a lot more to offer than what students may think - there's more individual attention, relationships that can be easily built with staff and faculty, and many opportunities for leadership and career development."

"Almost 20 years out but I still recommend Pfeiffer! The school used to be more secluded and more of a "suitcase" school when I was there because there wasn't much to do around town, but it has grown tremendously and through partnerships with neighboring areas, there are many options! Small enough to get to know people and professors and large enough for your choice of degree, athletics, and living situation! I loved it then and still visit today!"

"The pros of Pfeiffer University is giving full-time students the opporunity to seek a Graduate degree program. The classroom sizes are not too big and the professors work with you on a one-on-one basis. Pfeiffer also carries state of the art technology and I was very impressed with their user friendliness. One of the cons I would say Pfeiffer has is not being able to access all of the student based organizations because the main campus is about 2 hours away. Also, our campus in RTP does not offer student IDS; we would have to go the main campus to get our ID made and it is a huge inconvenience. Other than that, I have had such a great experience a Pfeiffer thus far and would recommend it to any working adult!"

"Pfeiffer offers a great value for the Raleigh/Triangle area with cohorts at several locations. The downside is sometimes it is difficult to get pertinent information quickly from the main campus. They do get back to you eventually, but phone calls nd emails are not as effective as face to face"

"Classes are interactive and the professors are amenable and readily available. Social aspect is lacking compared to other more traditional Graduate schools, but overall quality of education and sociability are quite good."
