Brittanie 1/3/2021

Not a good experience with university of Mississippi at all. During the period of my study at OleMiss, I was always stressed out and was treated poorly by school staffs. My heart was broken every time I had an issue, especially with financial aid office because they never helped me out. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Ashley 10/31/2020

Pharmacy school of university of Mississippi did not meet my expectation. Unfortunately, the program does not have the right curriculum for pharmacy students. I am not satisfied with their program at all and would not recommend it to anyone. if I could restart my education, I would never ever choose university of Mississippi again.
