Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences Reviews

306 reviews
All Categories
The academics taught by ACPHS are a solid return on investment because the teachers at the college are, for the most part, from my experience--amazing. There are issues with the campus food and college administration/politics influencing the students negatively. Upper administration will make decisions at the college without asking the opinion of the students or SGA then students will hear the news. It makes for a rather negative opinion of the leaders of the college. It can create a negative atmosphere at times. To reiterate, the professors are very supportive of student's careers, especially if you find one that you connect with and to be your mentor. It is just an issue of college politics.
Review Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences
The reason I chose ACPHS was for the research opportunities. I was able to work in a lab with material I was interested in. Not only did the professor provide me with the procedure, but also explained the importance and function of each element. Everything was explained in an applicable way and I was able to work around my class schedule. Working in a lab gave me the basic entry level I needed to start applying to internships and to further my career. (Pharmaceutical Sciences major)
In the first week school my roommate dropped out it's that bad here. Classes are insanely hard, I haven't eaten in days due to the food being so bad, there is nothing to do on campus (even though you'll never have free time), and no one in the area is competent; especially at the medical center near by. They also tell you the wrong books to buy, then when class comes you have to buy a whole new set. Also the busses WILL hit you while crossing the street. Flex dollars are BS as well.
