    Best decision I've made to further my education in medicine. As a student in the Biomed Tech B.S./AMCs PA Program, I’m appreciative for the focus of classes. If I'd chosen Pre-Med elsewhere, I wouldn't be exposed to as many health sciences so early. Coursework is rigorous. Professors are passionate/knowledgeable. There are many resources to succeed at the difficult courses including office hours, review sessions, peer tutoring, writing center, the Science Assistance Center, and the Center for Student Success. They have various duel degree programs with direct entry into various programs. Including PA school at AMC, JD at Albany Law, DO/MD schools, and the MS/PharmD here. Res life is supportive, and dorms have AC and private bathrooms! 2nd year most students have private bedrooms. Food's been steadily improving. The cafe on campus is unique and popular. The dining hall is receptive to critiques/change. I highly recommend to anyone seeking a rigorous and well-known degree in health.

    As much as it may be stated in other reviews, I really admire the small size of the school - it is an advantage when getting to know faculty and making friends. I am very close with my academic advisors, and the department that oversees my program has been very helpful in guiding me academically. Academic rigor varies with each program, but overall, it is very difficult. A majority of students are focused and driven, and the environment can be very competitive at times. Although coursework is challenging, it is for a reason: ACPHS seeks to prepare students to become future healthcare professionals. That being said, there are student-run tutoring programs that offer to help students with coursework, and the faculty is very welcoming and open to offering help if you just ask! Overall, as a student who knows they want to develop a career as a healthcare professional, I believe attending ACPHS was one of the best decisions I could have made.
    A small, tight-knit school. Very rigorous programs with tons of opportunities for growth and professional and academic advancement. If you're looking for a rigorous school that's not impossible to get into, ACPHS is for you. Most well known for the accelerated pharmacy program, they also offer degrees like MIcrobiology and Public Health. I was a Micro student. They have a good library, decent parking, great campus housing (especially for upperclassmen) and I always felt safe on campus. Lots of opportunities for lab work. Overall good professors, especially for freshmen. Food is pretty good, lots of options and lots of places to get food nearby. Not a party school. Like any college, there is a little partying (mostly after finals), people on the whole take their college experience here very seriously. So it's good if you're a no-nonsense student.
